Seatbelt...

http://www.adjab.com/2006/12/13/incredibly-graphic-seatbelt-ad-video/

This is a PSA from Ireland. I am going to warn you it is graphic...but truthful. This was shown to me by a fellow medic. We see this almost every shift. A death or a brain injury that could have been prevented with just a simple click of a seatbelt.

Be safe.

yikes. Thanks for sharing that - good reminder to the driver why they should insist that all passengers are buckled...

yes mama, thats what I said the first time I saw this. It wasn't long after I worked a terrible MVA that several people died because of this same type of thing. I showed this to my sister, my friends, everybody. I don't think people relize what the forces are that go on inside of a vehicle during a signifigant MVA (or even an insignifigant one)
