Seat Belts

Let’s talk about car safety for a moment. If you are on the shorter end of the height scale like I am, you are probably making the same seat belt mistake. I’m 5’2 on a good day and tend to find that the seat belt lays too high against my body, forcing me to pull the top half of the seat belt behind my torso and just sit in front of it or tuck it beneath my arms. While this usually seems slightly more comfortable at the moment, I have learned what a grave mistake it may be. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration credits seat belts with saving 15,000 lives annually. Seat belts stop the heaviest part of our body during a collision, keep our head and spinal cord safe, and of course, keep our bodies in the vehicle. When we aren’t wearing the seat belt properly, however, the chances of it being able to do these things drops considerably. Wearing your seat belt under your arm or behind you may seem more comfortable in the moment but it isn’t worth it. If you were unfortunate enough to get injured in a car accident we are here to help.
