Chapter 1 - Occupant safety
pg. 1 Occupant safety
Despite our strongest recommendations, and your best intentions, not wearing a seat belt is like
believing "It'll never happen to me!". Volvo, the inventor of the three-point seat belt, urges you and all
adult occupants of your car to wear seat belts and ensure that children are properly restrained, using an
infant, car or booster seat determined by age, weight and height. Volvo also believes no child should sit
in the front seat of a car.
Fact: In every state and province, some type of child-restraint legislation has been passed. Additionally,
most states and provinces have already made it mandatory for occupants of a car to use seat belts.
So, urging you to "buckle up" is not just our recommendation - legislation in your state or province may
mandate seat belt usage. The few seconds it takes to buckle up may one day allow you to say, "It's a
good thing I was wearing my seat belt".
