How to Drive a Car:  Seatbelts

These graphic videos are intended to re-enforce the message to teens who are just learning how to drive a car that seatbelts must be worn at all times.  If you get into the habit of buckling up every time you get in a car ... either as the driver or passenger it will become a reflex that may one day save your life or the life of others.

How to Drive a Car:   Make the "Seatbelt Check!” a Reflex

Before you put the car in gear, when you are learning how to drive a car,  call out, “Seatbelt check!”  Then have each person check they are belted, and the person next to them is belted too.  Make this a part of your driver ed checklist.

As you learn to drive a car make ‘Seatbelt Check!’ a habit every time you get in the car.  Even people who always wear their seatbelt sometimes make mistakes.  And you know that can be deadly.

Two-thirds of teen drivers and passengers killed in crashes were not wearing seat belts.

You’re 16 times more likely to be seriously injured if you’re not wearing a seatbelt. (NHTSA Data)
