In the event of a crash, seat belts are your best protection. Not only do they keep you from striking the steering wheel, being thrown around or hitting the windshield, but if your vehicle rolls over it will keep you inside the vehicle where your chances of surviving are greatest. In fact, if you wear your lap belt the chances of you surviving a collision double. When both a shoulder and lap belt are used your chances are three to four times as great.
If your vehicle is equipped with both shoulder and lap belts you are required to use both. Any vehicle that is equipped with airbags also requires the driver and passengers to wear both shoulder and lap belts to reduce the danger of being injured or killed by the airbag.
