Proper Seat Belt Use is Vital
Seat belts save lives, which is why it’s vital that we all buckle up - every ride, front seat and back. Wearing a seat belt properly is also essential.
Follow these guidelines when you buckle up:
- The lap belt and shoulder belt are secured across the pelvis and rib cage, which are more able to withstand crash forces than other parts of your body.
- Place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and away from your neck.
- The lap belt rests across your hips, not your stomach.
- NEVER put the shoulder belt behind your back or under an arm.
