seatbelts must be buckled manually. This type of restraint
is considered active. It requires action in order to be
used. Passive restraints include seatbelts that automatically
move to position when you enter a vehicle and airbags, since
neither require action by the user.
If your vehicle
was originally equipped with seatbelts, the law requires
you to use them and that they are in good working condition.
So, take the short moment or so to buckle your seatbelt
and dont be passive when it comes to safety.
