Safety Starts With Your Seatbelt

November 9th, 2016 by

Seat BeltIt seems like every other day we are able to offer new safety technology on new Chevrolet models here at Chevrolet of Homewood. While new safety tech comes out all the time, there’s still no substitute for regular old common sense when it comes to safety. One of the most basic things that you can do to protect yourself is wear your seatbelt. All the high tech systems in the world won’t be able to protect you in the event of a collision if you don’t put it on!

Why Your Seatbelt is Still Important

The seatbelt has been required by law for a long time—forgetting to wear it can make a big dent in your wallet. If you don’t wear your seatbelt, you might also put a dent in something a bit more painful.

Wearing your seatbelt isn’t option, and it’s no joke. While you might be driving a brand new Chevrolet model equipped with forward collision warning, automatic collision prevention braking, lane departure warning, or any other number of high tech safety systems, none of that can prevent injuries if an accident actually occurs. While your high-tech car might go a long way to help prevent accidents, nothing can stop all possible accidents completely.

If you do find yourself in an accident situation, you want the car to be able to protect you. While airbags and seatbelts might not be as exciting as the latest driver assistance technology, they can save your life. If you don’t wear your seatbelt, you’re putting yourself more at risk for serious injury. You’re also compromising the ability of your car to help keep you safe.

So wear your seatbelt, whenever you’re driving, any distance. It’s also important to make sure that your vehicle’s safety, security, and driver assistance systems are working. You can do that by having our expert technicians here at Chevrolet of Homewood check out your car, so schedule service online now.
