In cases of other frontal impacts, roll overs, certain side
impacts, rear collisions or other accidents without suffi-
cient frontal or rear impact forces, the emergency tension-
ing retractors will not be activated. The driver and
passenger will then be protected by the fastened seat
belts and inertia reel in the usual manner.
Wearing a seat belt incorrectly is dangerous. Seat
belts are designed to go around the large bones of
your body. These are the strongest parts of your
body and can take the forces of a collision the
best. Wearing your belt in the wrong place could
make your injuries in a collision much worse. You
might suffer internal injuries, or you could even
slide out of part of the belt. Follow these instruc-
tions to wear your seat belt safely and to keep
your passengers safe, too.
Two people should never be belted into a single
seat belt. People belted together can crash into one
another in an accident, hurting one another badly.
Never use a lap/shoulder belt or a lap belt for
more than one person, no matter what their size.
