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. 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". Loose, bulky clothing (such as an overcoat over a jacket) impairs the proper fit and function of the belts, reducing their capacity to protect. 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. For pregnant women, the lap part of the seat belt must lie as low as possible over the pelvis, never across the stomach, and always lie flat so that no pressure is exerted on the abdomen. The relevant safety requirements must be observed when the vehicle or components of the system are scrapped.
