Some drivers see seat belts as their enemy.
So they don't put it on.
I was very surprised to see a kid bouncing and playing around, and the mother speeding on the road. That's dangerous.
Kids have seat belts and they must use them.
But how can you convince a parent to make their kids use seat belts when those parents see it as their enemy.
Many people tend to forget why we use seat belts in the first place.
Seat belts are designed to retain people in their seats, and so prevent or reduce injuries suffered in a crash. They ensure that as little contact is made between the occupant and vehicle interior as possible and significantly reduce the risk of being thrown from a vehicle.
Without a seat belt, surviving a car crash is nearly impossible because someone may be killed before help comes.
Seat belt is a must as required by the law.
In fact, front seat belts are estimated to have saved tens of thousands of lives in Great Britain.
It saves lives every year. And it can definitely save yours too.
This is one of the first things you learn in a driving lesson:
You must always wear your seat belts.
My driving school did a great job emphasizing this and other necessary driving laws a new driver must know to stay safe on the road.
Now, there is something I must also call your attention to:
Don't wear damaged seat belts. This is very important.
Wearing damaged seat belts is almost the same as wearing no seat belts. Therefore, replace a damaged seat belt immediately. I would not recommend repairing it because it may not be 100% good after repair.
Even pregnant women are required by law to wear seat belts.
A slightly small accident could quickly get a pregnant woman killed when she isn't wearing a seat belt. To learn more call a driving school near you.
