So maybe you buckle up with others in the car, but you think that it’s a personal decision whether or not to click that buckle when you are by yourself. Debris on the road, actions of another driver, an animal running in front of you or a multitude of other reasons can cause you to swerve or lose control.
If there’s nothing holding you back, you could find yourself bouncing around your vehicle, and maybe even ripped from behind the wheel. The ripple effects of that crash go far beyond you as the driver.
Not buckled when you crash? This could be you. https://youtu.be/yDqv8QByM0M
