The humble seat belt is a wonderful safety device and a true life saver, although it’s sadly not seen as such by some foolish drivers and passengers. For that reason it’s illegal to travel without buckling up and my own attitude is simple – no belt, no ride.
Do make sure seat belts are positioned correctly. The lap strap should be worn low, securing the pelvis, not over the stomach.
As a driver, it is your responsibility to ensure the safety of all passengers. No belt, no ride!
