Why Should We Wear Seatbelts?

We should wear seatbelts in cars because they are reliable protective devices. Seatbelts are designed to immobilize the wearer during an impact so that the wearer is less likely to hit other parts of the vehicle or be ejected from the vehicle. Being immobilized by the seatbelts also allows other protective devices such as the front and side airbags to function properly to protect the vehicle’s occupants.
