How do safety belts of cars help in preventing accidents?

Accidents are sometimes created by ourselves due to our careless activities. If a person is driving basic things should be done first. Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45% and cut the risk of serious injury by 50%.

There are many ways by which safety belts of cars help in preventing accidents. They are as follows.

  • It helps to prevent injury in the case of a car crash by decreasing the velocity of a body as it undergoes a sudden reduction in speed.
  • A seatbelt expands the stopping force required to decelerate the rider across their body. This stops the body from hitting the steering column or windshield of a high-speed car, which could easily result in injury or even death.
  • The belt is designed to apply most of the stopping force required to the rib cage and pelvis both of which are relatively robust.
