Video Clips on Road Safety

The importance of wearing a seatbelt is clearly illustrated by crash tests monitored by the SABS. Many visitors to the arrive alive web site has expressed their concerns on parents driving with children standing on the front seat or sitting on the lap of parents without being buckled up.

The SABS Commercial Division [Transportation Cluster] has kindly made available video footage of crash tests. These videos should provide more than enough reason for everyone to buckle up before he/she embarks on a journey!
