Top ten reasons why you should buckle up!

 

10. If buckled up you can be sure of staying at the wheel and in control of the vehicle. This increases your ability to properly react to any situation and pose less of a threat to other drivers.

 

9. In a road traffic accident, passengers who are not buckled up will fly toward the point of impact, colliding with anything in their path such as dashboards, windshield or steering wheels with several pounds of moving force.

 

8. It’s a federal and state law.

7. Good drivers usually do not cause collisions, but they are often involved in crashes caused by other drivers. If you are in a crash, safety belt use can save your life and prevent long-term disability.

 

6. Driving for extended periods of time or in heavy traffic can be stressful and your awareness can be reduced. Safety belt use keeps you in a better position to stay aware of your surroundings at all times.

 

5. Driving at night, you are more likely to encounter impaired drivers; you must be in good control of your vehicle at all times.

 

4. You must maintain control of your vehicle to ensure defensive driving measures.

 

3. You are four times more likely to be killed if you’re ejected from a vehicle and fourteen times as likely to receive a spinal cord injury. Safety belts prevent you from going through a windshield.

 

2. When you wear your safety belt, your chances of being injured or killed are reduced by up to 50 percent.

 

1. And the #1 reason why you should always BUCKLE UP? You are someone’s son, daughter, mom, dad, husband, wife, or friend! The life you save may be your own!
