What is the proper sitting position?

While it’s important to wear your seat belt and have your seat back in the proper position, it’s just as important to sit in the right position while driving or riding.

  • Sit upright, completely against the back of the seat

  • Keep your feet on the floor until the car is stopped

  • Make sure the belt fits snugly but not too tightly at all times

An incorrect sitting position can make it possible to slide under the seat belt during an accident, or increase the chance of sustaining an injury.
