Seat Belts for Car Safety

Car safety is important. Motor vehicle deaths are the major cause of death in the first three decades of an American’s life. By wearing seat belts and buckling children into age and size appropriate car seats and booster seats, people can reduce the risk of serious injury and death by half. Most drivers do follow the safety measures but there are still millions who don’t. This is a primary enforcement for seat belt violations, which means that a driver can be pulled over and sited just for not wearing a seat belt.

Certain strategies have been put in place to TRY to increase seat belt use.

  • Laws have allowed officers to stop and ticket someone for not buckling up. Some states only allow officers to give tickets when they have pulled the driver over for something else.
  • Increased penalties can be given resulting in higher fines or points on a driver’s license.
  • High-visibility enforcement – Combining law enforcement and media coverage is effective for reaching people who don’t use seat belts regularly such as men, teens, and young adults.
  • Programs are conducted at night to target people when seat belt use is the lowest and crashes are the highest.

Certain strategies can increase car seat and booster seat use

  • Child restraint laws require children riding in a car to use approved devices appropriate for their age.
  • Effective programs can help advertise car seat and seat belt use.
  • Distribution of car seats through giveaways or low cost rentals.
  • Incentive programs with coupons or prizes reward parents for correctly using car seats.

Some facts:

  • Among drivers and front-seat passengers, seat beltsreduce the risk of death by 45%, and cut the risk of serious injury by 50%.
  • Seat belts prevent drivers and passengers from being ejected during a crash.
  • People not wearingseat belt are 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash.

Seat belts protect people from needless death and injury. People are in a hurry, distracted, and simply forget. Many people don’t wear their seat belts, and thousands die as a result. BE SAFE AND BUCKLE UP!

Your Windshield Replacement Service Provider

Windshield Replacement Service Provider

There are many reasons not to have your windshield replaced. Some say their insurance has a deductible is too high and they can’t afford it. Some say the crack doesn’t obstruct their view, while others say they just don’t see the necessity if it’s not shattered. What they don’t realize is that there is a risk to themselves and their families by not having their windshield replaced. It is so important to have a good windshield on your vehicle. Things you should know before choosing a windshield replacement service.

The Purpose of Your Windshield

Believe it or not, front windshields serve a much bigger purpose than just allowing you to view the outside while driving. They also protect you from the weather elements. More importantly are the safety features.

A Backdrop For Air Bags – Cheap, low-quality glass is more likely to crack or pop out, which can cause incorrect deployment or improper inflation of your air bags.

Preventing The Roof From Collapsing – Many people don’t realize that the windshield of the car provides from 30% to 60% of the car’s structural strength.  In a roll-over crash, a cheap windshield can cause your roof to collapse, which can be life-threatening to you and your passengers.

Prevent Ejection of Passengers in a Crash – Your windshield can also keep you from being thrown from your vehicle in the case of a collision. With the exception of seat belts, the windshield provides the most safety from being thrown from your vehicle.

Safety Comes First

Purchasing auto glass shouldn’t only consider the provider with the lowest price. Safety should always be the #1.  Here are four areas you should consider before choosing a provider.

Technicians should be highly trained, experienced and knowledgeable.

With so many makes and models of vehicles around today all having different types and shapes of auto glass, windshield installation and replacement can be complicated. Check these things while comparing costs!

The glass type and adhesive are important. Be sure that the auto glass being used is of high quality making it stronger. The same thing goes for the adhesive being used. Low-quality adhesives do not work as well in wet or cold climates and take much longer to dry or cure.  The windshield may leak with the slightest impact if you start driving around before the urethane has time to dry. We are all busy and don’t have much time to spare. Mobile auto glass repair is extremely convenient, but can be dangerous if we drive the car before the adhesive dries properly to prevent future problems.  Ask if there any precautions that should be taken a couple days after installation.

The Warranty is important.  You want to be sure your new windshield will last. 7 Stars Auto Glass San Diego offers a lifetime warranty on labor and manufacturer defects.

Reviews. Check the reviews. What are clients saying before you make your decision.
