How to Adjust Your Seat Belt

The wearing of seat belts can reduce the risk of injury during a car crash. When used properly, they provide drivers and passengers of motorized vehicles with increased protection. However, when used improperly, their ability to provide this safety is compromised. Proper seat belt adjustments are necessary to allow the restraints to work effectively.

Wear a diagonal belt across the upper chest.

Drivers often complain that this strap is uncomfortable, and they sometimes slip this behind their backs. However, when you do this, the belt’s ability to protect you from injury is decreased. Seat belts are designed to distribute force upon two areas of the body. Without this diagonal strap in place, this is impossible. If the strap is uncomfortable for you or your children, purchase a padded seat belt cover.
