False is this statement – “Safety belts are unnecessary for when driving at low speeds”

Fact – If you experience a frontal collision driving at even 50 km per hour, if you’re not belted, your body continues to travel forward into the vehicle’s frontal interior components (steering wheel, instrument panel, windshield).

This is actually the same velocity a person falling from the top of a three story building would experience when they come in contact with the ground.

Wearing your seat belt should be second-nature, a natural part of your driving routine. Seat belts help save lives and make the roadway a safer place for drivers and passengers alike.
