GMC Terrain. How to Wear Seat Belts Properly

  • Sit up straight and always keep your feet on the floor in front of you (if possible).
  • Always use the correct buckle for your seating position.
  • Wear the lap part of the belt low and snug on the hips, just touching the thighs. In a crash, this applies force to the strong pelvic bones and you would be less likely to slide under the lap belt. If you slid under it, the belt would apply force on your abdomen. This could cause serious or even fatal injuries.
  • Wear the shoulder belt over the shoulder and across the chest. These parts of the body are best able to take belt restraining forces. The shoulder belt locks if there is a sudden stop or crash.
