WE 4 YOU
ASTM-SIAS Motorway Operators designed high-performance safety barriers intended to redirect the vehicles towards the carriageway and mitigate the impact of heavy-goods vehicles while being flexible enough against light vehicles. However, motorways are designed to be driven through at relatively high speeds. You cannot even think you to resist a collision when unbelted. You know what? Even in town, you'd rather comply with the code and wear safety belts– a car falling from the third floor of a building hits the ground at 50 km/h. If you were to fall from the first floor, it'd be 30 km/h and from the ninth floor almost 85 km/h. Would you jump from the third floor, or even just from the first, with your car without wearing your belt?
When you travel by car, either as a driver or as a passenger.
Your fellow passengers and you must wear the safety belts. Before leaving, check that everybody is wearing their safety belts, both in the front and back seats. If there are any children, check that the vehicle is equipped with infant car seats suitable for their height and weight. Remember that babies must never be sitting in the front seats.
In case of collision, any passenger not being firmly attached to the vehicle is bound to be projected outside it at high speed in the driving direction. Be careful!! Don't think that the passengers sitting in the back run no risk. Whoever is not wearing their seat belts can be hurled out of the car with very serious consequences.
Besides, uncontrolled movements of unbelted passengers might be dangerous for the others – a person hitting other passengers deadweight might cause very serious damages to themselves and to the others.
