A seat belt is a vital safety feature in your vehicle. The seat belt can limit injuries in an accident, and potentially save your life. When wearing a seatbelt, three things are especially important: 1. The seatbelt should be snug, and there should be no slack. 2. The lap belt should run under your abdomen and over your thighs. 3. The shoulder belt should run over your shoulder. It should not run along the side of your arm, or into your neck.
