Vehicle Safety in San Bernardino, CA

Many traffic fatalities are due to improper use of mandatory safety features. Approximately 50% of the households in San Bernardino have children. Many times, the victims of serious injuries and fatalities are children and young adults. This is because the proper safety precautions are not followed. Hiring an accident attorney when these injuries happen will greatly increase your chances of obtaining a settlement that will help you get your life back on track.

In California, all passengers in a vehicle are required to wear a seatbelt. Often times, due to a false sense of security, people avoid the simple act of latching their seatbelts. There is also a falsely held belief where if a car ignites, a seatbelt will keep you from being able to escape. Causing further injury. The simple fact is that serious injuries resulting from car accidents are reduced, on average, by more than 50% when seatbelts are in use.  If you are in a car as passenger or driver, your seatbelt should be on.

Children less than 8 years of age and less than 57” tall must be in the rear seats if possible. This, too, is often ignored for the sake of comfort or convenience. Statistics have shown that while airbags are often responsible for saving lives in adults, a young child can be killed or seriously injured by an airbag. Riding with a safety belt in the back seat significantly reduces the chance that a child involved in an auto accident will suffer serious injuries.

Infants must be restrained in a specific fashion as well. An infant in California must be secured in a rear-facing car seat in the rear of the vehicle (if no rear seat is available, the airbag in the front seat must be disabled). While many parents are tempted to hold their infant while they are passengers in a vehicle, statistics show that an infant’s risk of death or serious injury is reduced by more than 71% through the proper use of car seats. For more information on traffic safety and how San Bernardino residents can protect their children and passengers against injury in the case of a car accident, numerous resources are available on the California Highway Patrol site, the Center for Disease Control website, and the San Bernardino County Traffic S.A.F.E. Program site
