Could your seatbelt save your life?
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that more than 15,000 lives are saved every year because people involved in an auto accident were wearing their seat belts. You could be next! In the unfortunate situation that you were involved and or injured in an auto accident, wearing your seat belt could save your life or prevent additional injuries in five ways:
- Keeping the occupants inside the vehicles
- Restraining the stronger parts of the body
- Spreads out any force from the collision
- Helps the body slow down
- Protects the brain and spinal cord
In addition to these benefits, there are many details to know about seat belts and car seats for children. To review more information on this topic, EverydayHealth.com has a great article. http://www.everydayhealth.com/healthy-living/wearing-your-seat-belt.aspx
Plus, in Texas, it's the law. You have seen the ads that remind you to "click it or ticket." It's time that we take wearing a seat belt even more seriously because it could save our own life if we were involved in an auto accident.
