You may know that having unsecured cargo in your vehicle – such as baggage, briefcases, or purses – can transform into dangerous projectiles if your car is involved in a collision. However, you may not know that the most dangerous potential projectile in your vehicle is anyone who is not securely buckled in to his or her seat.
Wearing your seatbelt is not just for YOUR safety.
Some people who don’t buckle up claim that it is their choice and their life – and that no one else is affected by their decision to go without a seat belt. However, they may not realize that by not wearing a restraint, they are risking the health and safety of everyone else in the car. If your vehicle is struck by another car, runs into an obstacle, or rolls over, anyone not wearing a seatbelt will likely fly from their seat and could strike another person. Because of the large amounts of force involved in these accidents, a human projectile could easily inflict fatal injuries on another passenger.
