Seatbelts do Save Lifes!

The function of the seatbelt is to hold the passenger in place so the passenger is almost part of the car which avoids the passenger from flying forward as the car stops suddenly in the case of a collision.

When a car stops suddenly due to a collision with another object such as another car, a tree, pole, guardrail, etc. the car's acceleration decreases very quickly in a short period of time. This is called deceleration. Newton's Law of Inertia clarifies how this happens. LAW OF INERTIA: An object in motion continues in motion with the same speed and direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force (

Seatbelt has saved my husband’s life. A few years ago, my husband and his friend were traveling back home. At that time, his friend was driving and my husband sat beside. Feeling sleepy, he closed his eyes and told his friend that he wanted to sleep for a while. Thank God, my husband didn’t forget to fasten the seatbelt and also wore a hat. Later, the car collided the concrete fence very hard.

His friend thought that he saw a running truck in the front; in fact, that’s a parking truck! Being panic, he avoided the truck, turned abruptly to the left side of the road and hit the concrete fence of a home. It’s a hard collision since he stepped on the gas pedal more, not the brake pedal!

The front part of the car was crashed almost a half. The windshield shattered and the pieces scattered everywhere. Because my husband was wearing seat belt, he was not thrown out. The hat has protected his head from flying glass. There’s only a little glass that wounded his chin. His friend was also not big injured as he’s also wearing seatbelt, just a little pain on his chest.

"Fasten your seatbelts. Its your life. Its our law." That's what I always notice on the roads here in billboards signs. Visiting from Nostalgia.
