t\ June 23,1974 Seat Belts Double Chances By -Mario* Wells Director, .4autrifa» Fvuro/ Reearrb Institute Tens of thousands of lives are lost and over a million more people are injured in tralfic accidents each year. Cars are now equipped with ; simple devices which could ' double your chances of surviving an accident, according to 1 -.the National Safety Council. If ; 'we all used than constantly, we. could prevent up to 10,000 -deaths and countless injuries ; -annually. These devices are called safety belts, and sur- .-v£ys indicate that perhaps only one in three riders is buckling the lap variety and even fewer are using shoulder straps. ARCs of Health What are the benefits of buckling up? Over-all, you're five times more likely to survive a crash if you're not ; [thrown out of your car, the very thing seat belts are de' signed to prevent. You're also · 'more likely to stay conscious enough to get yourself out of [harm's way if you're strapped . in. A safety belt will keep you \behind the wheel so you can ·maneuver your car out of a ' small accident before it becomes a major one. Belts are . easily unfastened. · ; The National Safety Council [·claims that when seat belts ·[are properly worn, they help [·you in ordinary driving. The · [ belts hold you securely in your [-seat while steering around " · '. corners, keep you from bounc- . ing off the car roof when you · -.bump over holes or dips and . - [ h e l p to lessen f a t i g u e by ; [ · promoting good driving pos[ ture. .;· What if you're pregnant? '-The American Medical Assn. -.*; recommends that pregnant ^·I women wear seat belts, and i'; survival statistics for both ·': · mother and baby seem to f a- ·' I vor doing so. · · Suppose you're a good driv- '-./!. er and have never been in an · - - accident? TheNational'Safety "'-'. Council says four out of five '* ; accidents involve drivers with v' a previously unspotted re- I', cord! Besides, who can con\ '- trol what the other guy does? Did you say you do most of or cfaest. Buckle your children in! What's the best way to buckle up? Babies and small children are safer in the back seat. Children's safety restraints should be securely fastened to either the structure of the car itself or to a seat belt attached to the structure. For infants, a firm car crib or bassinet with plenty of pillow or blanket padding is most desirable. Straps across the crib's top well above the infant's hbs and pelvis will help cut the chances of ejection. Special seats or restraints are available for children between the ages of 1 and 5. If you get one of these be sure it is firmly attached .to the car structure. Standard belts won't do because the lap variety exerts too much pressure on youngsters below 40 pounds and shoulder belts may hit a child or an especially short person across the neck or face in a crash. Standard lap belts may be used starting at age 4, or 5, but stick a hard cushion underneath the youngster. Be sure rear and center seats are equipped with belts. When fastening standard belts, safety experts advise straightening up and keeping the lap belt low, over the hip bones rather than the abdominal cavity. Leave no more than the space of a thumb between the belt and your body. You should barely be able to get your fist between the shoulder strap and you. The Society of Automotive Engineers has set seat belt s t a n d a r d s for strength, stretch, release and ease of adjustment. A label with the seal of the American Seat Belt Council or Underwriters' Laboratories means the belt in question meets this standard. * * * IN THE future, cars may refuse to start uakss safety belts are fastened. Many ears are now equipped with lights and buzzers to bug you into buckling. States may pass laws making it illegal not to strap yourself in. Yet ia last analysis, the initiative still lies with you. When you consider that 90 per cent'of highway aeckteats involve driver error and it's isepossatote to keep all the poor drivers off the road, it's obviously no longer enough to be fit to drive. You're more sure to arrive if you're also fit to rjde.
