You can only see it after you've been let through the merge of the fasttrack and main queue so even if you were queuing 10 minutes for it you'd be able to see it

On B&M coasters (Nemesis etc) - The strap means nothing. It serves no purpose apart from a visual emphasis on safety for non-coaster enthusiasts.
Launched Coasters on Intamin (Rita etc) - Again, the strap means nothing.
Lap-bars - these are again locking systems.
A.I.R. B&M coasters (Air etc) - It is a double locking system. one of the back of the harness and one where the lap area is.
All kind of locking harnesses/lap-bars use a locking system which means they will not come undone unless via a station release or key release. Parks will not open a ride if any part of the ride is unsafe or fails during evening and morning testing. Morning testing is done by the tech team and then the ride op. All paperwork is signed and counter signed to cover H&S (legally, only needs to be one signature)
Most coasters these days have sensors which unless the locking system has functioned fully at the station/on-load stage, it will not be allowed out of the station, in fact, it will not be allowed (the way they are now programmed) to even have the command to send the train.
