dfive point harness

I'm am going to be purchasing some sparco racing seats with a five point harness. I was wondering if anyone knows if it safe to use these types of seatbelts. I know when in a race application with a helmet, and neck restraints it is safe, but when used in a normal car like the celica is it? I have been trying to research this a little and have had no luck.

i think i remember hearing that you shouldnt buckle up every point when you're just driving... if your car flips and lights on fire you cant get out or something like that.

you can just buckle the lap belt when your driving...

yes, its safer with just the lap belt. I researched this a little when I was considering harnesses - they're great for auto-x and track use, but really unsafe for daily driving...
