cropped belt

By Nnamdi Ikeh-Akabogu (FRSCN)


Putting on seatbelts doesn’t mean you are wearing them correctly. It is important to wear seatbelts correctly to avoid stories that touch the hearts.


  • Ensure there are no obstructions to the smooth movement of the belt


  • Ensure that the seat belt is worn with no slack but as tight as possible.


  • Ensure that the lap belt does not go over the stomach but the pelvic region


  • Ensure that the diagonal strap is not resting over the neck but on the shoulder


  • If the belt does not fit over you correctly, adjust it to the required height from where you have it located by the door side.


  • Pregnant women should ensure that the lap belt is placed on the thigh beneath their abdomen comfortably.


  • Pregnant women should also ensure that the strap is placed diagonally between the breast, not the neck.


It is better accepted than rejected……


Wearing a Seat Belt could save you from untimely death.
