Belt Up. You’re worth holding onto

Did you know that whilst only three to five per cent of drivers and passengers do not wear a seat belt, 22 per cent of all those who died in a motor vehicle crash in 2012 were not wearing a seat belt?

Wearing a seatbelt is one of the easiest ways of protecting yourself when travelling in a vehicle

Seat belts prevent vehicle occupants from being ejected from a vehicle. They reduce the time taken for the body to come to a stop in a crash, spread the impact force over a greater area of the body, and minimise the contact of the driver or passengers with the interior of the vehicle. It is one of the easiest ways of protecting drivers and passengers when travelling in a vehicle.
