Buckle Up For Car Driving Safety - Wear Your Seatbelts

Sep 16, 2008
There are any of a number of reason people hold why they should not use their seatbelts. "It ties me in", "I don't like it", "the airbag is enough" or just plainly "It's ridiculous". In the end it never hurts to play it safe. It in the end it can be said and summarized that there are no good reasons why you should not wear why you should not wear and seatbelt and plenty of good reasons why you should and aught to.

Safety and the yearn for safety are an integral parts of our daily lives and cultures. However when it comes to driving we often forget to ensure the well being of both ourselves and our motoring passengers. This can be said to apply well to the wearing and use of ordinary car, truck or S.U.V. seatbelt safety devices.

Remember "Newton's Law" from your high school or university physics courses. Simply put by Newton's law "An object in motion remains in motion". If a vehicle is in motion on the road and stops suddenly then anything within that vehicle keeps moving in that same direction. Inertia continues on. Seatbelts will serve to keep an occupant or occupants firmly and securely in their seats.

A properly worn seatbelt will save lives and injury. Without a seatbelt that same forward motion and inertia will be stopped. However what stops it may be the front windshield, the dash, the steering column or perhaps even dangerously an infant in the car. True cars have become safer - steering wheels collapse, glass is safer, car dashes are padded - but all in all it's a poor choice and bargain - when compared to the simple safety afforded by buckling in with standard automotive seat belts. It's no accident that seat belts are mandatory equipment in all vehicles for many years now.

You might think that the forward motion involved in automobile travel is minor and that your strength will simply save you. I will just put out my hand or hands grab something and stop. Not only do accidents happen in a flash, are unexpected, but even a minor stop from 15 to 25 hours a mile to standstill is enough to throw a grown man right through the windshield.

The same logic of safety first should always be applied first and foremost to children and infants. Interestingly enough one may commonly see on the roads and by ways infants or children properly buckled up in the car , or an infant in a properly tethered infant sear in the back seat , yet notice that the adult driver themselves are not restrained properly. Not only is the parent taking a chance with their parental duties themselves but also in the event of an accident, since they are unrestrained may cause damage or injuries to their children in the event of an accident. This can not only occur on long journeys at high speed but even on short trips to the store or supermarket but even in the parking lot of that supermarket itself.

One can never be too safe when it comes to safety and the application of safety when it comes to driving. The same can be said of the mandatory use of seatbelts in any automobile - whether it be car, auto, truck or S.U.V. It is no accident that fully that between 1/3 and of all those people who are killed in motor vehicle accidents were found not be wearing seatbelts. Make it standard practice to ensure that both your occupants as well as you are properly buckled up with the seatbelts installed in your automotive vehicle.
