Seatbelts: FALSE IDEAS and FACTS

Seatbelts: FALSE IDEAS and FACTS

Mr Joseph Ballan

Some people have misconceptions regarding seatbelts, however the truth is they save lives and help reduce the rate of injuries and deaths. YASA unfolds people’s beliefs and fact regarding seatbelts.

Many are convinced that they will be trapped inside the car if they are wearing the safety belt in a crash – FALSE IDEA
Many have heard stories of a car catching fire or sinking in water however these types of crashes rarely happen. YASA confirms that if you were involved in a crash and you were using the seatbelt, you would increase the chance of NOT hitting your head and losing conscious during and after such a crash, and hence be able to unbuckle your safety belt and get out. You can be trapped in your vehicle whether you’re wearing a safety belt or not. The fact is, even if your upside down, it takes a second to unfasten your belt.

Many think that if their car is equipped with airbags, they do not need to use the seatbelt - FALSE IDEA
YASA confirms that the airbag system is a supplementary safety device to and is designed to work with safety belts, not instead of them. It is a must to wear a safety belt whenever you are in a vehicle.

Many think that driving a short distance does not require wearing a seatbelt – FALSE IDEA
YASA confirms that most traffic crashes happen within 25 km of home. In fact, 8 out of every 10 accidents occur when drivers are going 60 km or less. Avoid risk; ALWAYS wear your safety belt whenever you drive regardless of the most preventable cause of children deaths and disabilities. Most of the kids who pass away or get injured in car crashes could have survived had they been fastened properly into child safety seats. YASA recommends that you take the extra minute to buckle your children into their seats before you set off on any drive and never do exceptions to the rule of having the Children Safely Buckled.

Many think that pregnant women should not wear the seat belts – FALSE IDEA
YASA confirms that the pregnant woman is at equal if not higher risk than other passengers therefore she should always wear the seatbelt while in the car. The seatbelt should be placed under the rounding of the belly. When a seat belt is worn properly, it is more likely that the fetus will not be hurt in a crash. For pregnant women, as for anyone, the key to making safety belts effective is to wear them properly.

YASA recommends that pregnant women wear lap-shoulder belts. The lap portion should be worn as low as possible, below the rounding, throughout the pregnancy.
