Safe Driving Advise-Seat belt--HTML Version

Save a life.  The life you save this weekend could be your own.  Slow down and belt up.  In an accident an unbelted passenger is more likely to die than one who's wearing a seatbelt.  Without a seatbelt in a crash at fifty kilometres an hour you'll be thrown forward with a force of between thirty and sixty times your body weight.  Seatbelts significantly reduce this force and consequently the rish of injury and death. Mayo County Council are committed to road safety.  Log on to plan a safe route to www.mayococo.ie/safe.
