The higher the speed and the are not wearing seat greater the weight, the more energy there is to be released in an accident. To achieve the best possible protection, the seat belt must always be worn properly so that you will be protected in accidents in which no airbag is deployed. Furthermore, properly worn seat belts improve the protection provided by airbags in the event of an accident.
The front airbags will not be triggered during minor frontal collisions, minor side collisions, rear collisions, overturns or accidents in which the airbag trigger threshold value in the control unit is not exceeded. Taken together, all these features reduce the releasing kinetic energy and consequently, the risk of injury. Of course, properly worn seat belts substantially reduce the risk of injury in all other types of accidents.
This is why it is so important to fasten seat belts before every trip, even when "just driving around the corner". The slot in the seat belt buckle must not be blocked with paper or other objects, as this can prevent the latch plate from engaging securely. The seat belts offer best protection only when the backrests are in an upright position and the seat belts have been fastened properly.
