There are so many reasons seatbelts are essential while any vehicle is in motion. Some primary points include:
1) Individuals in a vehicle who are not wearing a seat belt can become projectiles during
an accident. Unbuckled individuals can easily be ejected through the front, rear or side windows resulting in death.
2) around 20% of all deaths in Arizona were because of not wearing a seatbelt-this is preventable!
3) The chances of surviving a vehicle related accident increases about 45% when wearing a seatbelt properly. This amount can be increased to 60% when in larger vehicles such as SUV's and Trucks.
Lets not forget about your children or younger passengers! Any child under 4'9 feet needs to be in a properly secured seat in the rear of a vehicle with a seatbelt properly secured and checked by an adult before the car is in motion.
