Topic: Seat Belts
Previous TopicNext TopicHelpNews
When you take you vehicle off the road you will notice that most of your driving is done at very slow speeds due to the rougher terrain. You will also find yourself getting in and out of your SUV frequently to explore. For many, the seat belt therefore seem unnecessary and mostly a nuisance.

Nothing could be further from the truth! Off the road, seat belts are as important, if not more important, than using them religiously on the highway.

No matter how hard you try, you will eventually hit an unexpected rock or hole in the road and if you do so with a little bit of speed, you and your passengers could suffer a fairly serious bump to the head or arms. Seat belts will keep you safe when the inevitable jostling of off road driving occurs.

A far more serious concern is the the remote possibility of a roll over accident. Even at extremely slow speeds, vehicle roll overs can throw passengers out where they are in serious danger of being crushed by the still moving vehicle. Many serious roll over injuries or deaths happen to those who were not wearing their seat belts.

Warning: Always wear your seatbelts when driving on the highway or around town in addition to when driving off the road. Not wearing seatbelts is a major contributor to serious injury or death in many accidents.
