Wear your seat belt

You should always wear your seat belt when driving a motor vehicle or even being a passenger in one for that matter. In the event of an accident, seat belts can help prevent you from being ejected from the vehicle. Serious injury and possibly death can be avoided simply by doing this task. It only requires a few seconds.

Always check whether you and your passengers have the seat belts on before moving your motor vehicle. It could save lives.
