Things You Should Know About Seat Belt Safety
2
Generally, people do not have enough time to
react when they get into a car accident.
3
In such cases, seat belt safety is the only thing
that can save the driver and passengers from
serious injuries and death.
4
If you properly buckle up, you can protect
yourself in an unexpected case like a car crash
and this is also the reason why there are no
automobiles are manufactured without seat belts.
5
There are some basic yet important things to be
aware of regarding the seat belt safety.
6
Do not rely only on airbags
7
It is true that whether you own a right-hand or
left hand drive car, your airbags can work even
when youre not wearing your seat belt.
8
However, they wont give you the best protection
during a crash as in the event of an accident,
the airbags automatically open when they detect
the impact.
9
It takes a split-second for these to open up and
when there is no securing force on you, you will
be thrown into the rapidly opening bag.
10
This can severely injure you or even lead to
death due to choking of heart or rise in blood
pressure.
11
Properly wear your seat belt
12
When you check the car manual or stickers on your
vehicle, you will see guidelines for correctly
using the seat belt.
13
You have to follow them and remember to secure
the shoulder belt and the lap belt across the rib
cage and pelvis respectively.
14
These are the parts of your body that are most
likely to take the impact in the event of a
crash.
15
Ensure that the lap belt is tucked under your
stomach, across the hip and never place the
shoulder belt behind your back or under your arm.
16
Right fit of the seat belt
17
It is also important to have the right fit to
ensure optimum seat belt safety.
18
One of the best road safety tips for long trips
is to ensure that you are comfortably seated.
19
In case you want to be more comfortable, you can
talk to the dealer and request extenders.
20
You can also use an adjuster if the belt is
loose.
21
Remember
22
Vehicle technology advancements are improving
safety among drivers and more people are taking
protective driving courses.
23
When it comes to road safety tips, it is also
important that you ensure your seat belts are
working fine and doing so can add a lot to your
safety.
24
So, when you buy a new or used car, make sure
that the belts are functioning well and if they
are not, get them replaced before you hit the
road.
