Why do we need a seat belt? - level 2
First, it is good to know what will happen when you are in a car crash.
Try to run as fast as possible into a wall. This is exactly the situation when the front of your car hits something at only 25 kilometres an hour. The car stops and your body continues at the same speed before it hits something, usually the front window of your car. This will happen if you're not using your seat belt. You will feel pain but it won’t kill you.
If you go 50 kilometres an hour, you hit the window not twice but four times harder than if you go 25. It is the same as if you fall down 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.
