Love your family and friends – Buckle Up.

It's important to remember that everyone in a car needs to be buckled up. In the event of a crash an unrestrained body could be catapulted in various directions causing fatal injuries to other vehicle occupants. Next time you’re in a vehicle remind those travelling with you to buckle up too.

  • Seatbelts must be worn at all times by all occupants before putting the vehicle in motion.
  • Ensure the lap belt is positioned low across your hips and the should belt is always sitting across the centre of your chest
  • Drivers are responsible for ensuring both themselves and passengers under the age of 16 are using proper restraints.
