It is incredibly important to wear the appropriate protection, such as seatbelts, in a vehicle. By not wearing seatbelts, one risks much more bodily injury than if one were wearing the appropriate protection.
It is also very important to ensure that one is physically stable when driving a vehicle. It is important to be well rested and not under the influence of any drugs, including prescription medication, while driving. Being under the influence or being impaired in whatever capacity that harms one’s capabilities of reacting quickly not only increase the risk of being grevously injured, it also increases the probability of injuring others.
