When it comes to traffic rules and road safety precautions, everyone is equal according to the law and everyone must follow the law. But is this really being followed? Is everyone following the traffic rules and road safety precautions?
A video has surfaced on social media which shows what happens if you do not wear a seatbelt while traveling. The footage managed to capture the interiors of a bus when it met an accident. From the bus’s onboard cameras, we can see a car running into a bus causing it to roll and injuring one passenger.
The incident happened on October 1 in Zhuzhou city in China’s central province Hunan. The driver was driving steadily along the highway when all of a sudden a white car hits the bus on its left side, causing the driver to lose control and the bus to roll.
At that moment, the passengers inside the bus are casually looking at their phones, when, upon impact, a number of them had flung from their seats and showered with luggage falling from overhead compartments.
The passengers who had fastened their seat belts, stayed firmly confined to their seats, while the others were literally thrown off their seats. The impact of the accident was so strong that one person was left seriously injured.
“In the video, we can see that the female passenger in white clothes didn’t wear a seatbelt. The bus was driving very fast on the highway, and she was thrown out of her seat due to strong inertia when the accident happened. However, the passengers who wore seat belts were firmly fixed on their seats,” a police officer said.
“The main function of the seat belt is that it can hold drivers and passengers in place when an accident happens, avoid collisions between people and other parts of a vehicle and reduce injury to drivers and passengers,” he added.
