Three Strikes, You’re Out

Posted on May 31, 2011

Did you know that there are technically three collisions within one crash?
1. The vehicle and another object
2. The occupant and another object (airbag, windshield, or worse)
3. The occupant’s internal organs against the inside frame of the person’s body

Seat belts save lives by reducing the impact of the 2nd and 3rd collisions. Watch the video clip below and see if you can count the three collisions. What’s stopping you?
