The facts about seatbelts.
We all know seatbelts save lives, but around 10% of Queenslanders still aren’t buckling up. If you’re one of them, you’re 8 times more likely to be killed in a crash even at low speeds. A crash at 40km has the same impact as falling from a two storey building. So, always wear your seatbelt even on short journeys. Without a seatbelt you’re risking your life your cash, and your driver's licence. And remember, if you’re driving you’re responsible for all passengers (children and adults) wearing their seatbelts. A couple of seconds to buckle up could save your life and theirs.
