important message on Seat belt and Airbag
1. Seat belt is the primary protection and airbag is the secondary protection .
2. The meaning is Airbag alone will not protect WITHOUT wearing seat belt , in fact it may hurt or kill or hurt badly..
3. Except hand holding the steering , body ( trunk) shall be minimum 300 mm away from steering wheel , closer than this distance even if seatbelt is used and airbag operates driver will not be protected .. so stay away from steering minimum 300 mm..( VERY IMPORTANT)
4. Sit comfortably and ensure the buttock is not tilted towards the steering it will make driver slide in case of accident . Original seats are provided to prevent the slide..
5. Never Never fix crash bars or the side bars in your cars on your own…These may protect the vehicle but will kill the passengers inside due to improper impact load transfer, and also altering the crumbling zone, based on which the Airbags are designed to respond in 35 Milli seconds ..
6. Airbags must be replaced once it gets used. This must be done at the authorized dealer end only..
7. Headrest for drive r and the co-passenger is very very crucial, with safety belt and airbags functioning not having headrest in the right place ( see vehicle manual for correct position) will break the neck after the impact ..I saw the video and clearly seen how important it is to have headrest in position .. I am not sure how many of us are aware that headrests are detachable and they carry sharp wedges at the end which can be used for breaking the window if stuck inside the car post accident.
8. Irrespective of distance to travel wear seat belt , it is not for long drives only, it is the impact that matters not the distance …
9. All passengers ( front and rear) to wear seat belt …kids need to be protected well too with safety cradles…
10. Be careful in keeping loose items in the car .. as they could turn into missiles on high velocity impact …put them in the boot..
The amazing engineering that had gone into these developments , for our safety ,incorporated by car makers have to be used for protecting us and our near and dears ..
SAFE DRIVING , SAFE LIVING
