Collisions do happen,however,even to the most careful
driver.The force of a collision is so great that unrestrained
persons may strike each other or the interior of the vehicle,
or may be ejected from the vehicle.Severe injuries or death
often result.Using a seat belt or child restraint system
correctly helps hold all persons in place in the vehicle.
This provides them with a far better chance of avoiding
serious injury.

Seat belts and child restraints also help prevent injuries
during “regular”driving.A driver may have to swerve
and stop,or stop suddenly to avoid a collision.Unrestrained
persons may strike each other or the vehicle interior.

Fewer than 1 per cent of all injury-producing collisions
involve fire or submersion.In these situations,wearing
a seat belt greatly increases the chance of remaining
conscious in order to escape from the vehicle.
