Not wearing a safety belt is a selfish act. It is not a matter of personal choice.
If you do not wear safety belt you become a potential killer in a car crash. You will be thrown around the inside of a car possibly seriously injuring or killing other occupants in the car.
WITHOUT A SAFETY BELT- YOU ARE A KILLER!
Around 2 out 3 people will survive or have less serious injuries if they are wearing a safety belt. Wherever you are sitting in a crash at 30mp/h, if you are unbelted, you will hit the other people in the vehicle with force of between 30 and 60 times your body weight.
The penalties for getting caught are:
- A fixed penalty notice.
- Penalty points on your licence.
- Passengers over 14 can be fined up to £500 for not wearing a safety belt.
- Drivers face receiving up to 3 penalty points and a fine of up to £500 if they fail to wear a safety belt and fail to ensure passengers under 14 are restrained properly.
DON’T BE SELFISH…GET IT ON !
