Buckle up, before you even turn the key
Under impact conditions,
all vehicle occupants not wearing seatbelts face the same risks:
- - Projection toward the front of the vehicle under frontal collision
- - Impact with vehicle sides under lateral collision
- - Ejection from vehicle if the vehicle rolls over
Drivers of a vehicle in which any occupant is not wearing a seatbelt face the loss of three points from their licence, plus a fine of €135.
