While 30 or 40 km/h seems slow in your car, that’s about the same speed that you travel when you’re going flat out on a bicycle
Crashes are all different and there are many different factors that can affect the severity of the injury – the kind of crash (rollover, head-on etc), the speed you’re driving at, whether you’ve got air bags, whether you’re wearing a seat-belt, whether you’re the passenger or driver, whether you hit a solid object or a car and much more.
Wearing a seatbelt is the simplest and most effective way to reduce the risk of injury in front-on crashes and many other types of crashes. There are other safety devices, such as airbags, that can also reduce the severity of injuries in a crash, while others, such as Electronic Stability Control – or ‘ESC’ – can actually reduce the possibility of a crash occurring.
The truth is that most crashes can be avoided altogether through safe driving.
