Seatbelt Safety Tip

MYTH:  I have an air bag to protect me—that’s good enough.

 FACT:  Seat belts keep you in the proper position to benefit from the deployment of an air bag.  If you are not wearing your seat belt, you could slide under the airbag or be thrown into a rapidly opening frontal airbag; a movement of such force could injure or even kill you.  In addition, airbags will not help in rear impact or rollover crashes.
