Proper Seat Belt Use Reduces the Risk of Auto Injuries


Texting and driving, drinking and driving, reckless driving – with so many distractions, commuters are well aware of the risk of a car accident. And they know that seat belts are vitally important. Not only can they save the lives of drivers and passengers, they also protect users from sustaining serious injury as a result of an accident.

While the benefit of seat belt use is common knowledge, we often wear them incorrectly. The lower belt should extend across your lap, not your stomach. The upper belt should extend across the collarbone and it shouldn’t touch the neck or face. Wearing a seat belt incorrectly may actually increase the risk of an injury from a car accident. The attorneys at Annapolis firm Hyatt & Weber encourage you to watch this video so you can determine whether you are wearing your seat belt properly.
