HALDIMAND—With lack of seatbelt use attributed to 55 people dying on Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) patrolled roads last year, the OPP is giving seatbelt skeptics a few scenarios to consider that could save their lives.
Unbuckled crash survivors are not common
At any given second, an aggressive, impaired, or distracted driver can collide with your vehicle, subjecting the body of an unrestrained driver or passenger to a level of crash force from which few people survive. You may not be able to stop a dangerous driver from crashing into your car, but by wearing a seatbelt, you can greatly reduce their chances of killing you.
