At the beginning you need to know some information about a car crash.

Try to run very fast into a wall. This is the situation when your car hits something at 25 kilometres an hour. The car stops and your body continues fast and it hits something, usually the front window of your car. You will hit the front window of your car if you don’t have your seat belt. It won’t be OK for you but it won’t kill you.

If you go 50 kilometres an hour, you hit the window 4x harder than if you go 25. It is like when you jump from the third floor.

If you use a seat belt, you won’t hit the window.

We are playing for you a short film about a seat belt.
