Machine illustrates importance of seatbelt safety


Eureka, Ca., (KIEM) There was a new addition to the Fourth of July festivities in Old Town, Eureka this year. The Seatbelt Convincer, a machine that illustrates what a five to seven mile per hour collision feels like. The machine is also used to advocate the importance of seatbelt safety.

Brannan Toroni said he thinks this is important because he lost his bestfriend in a car collision.

“My bestfriend from kindergarten lost his life,” the teen said “just like that you can lose your life.”

The Seatbelt Convincer is owned by ‘Making Headway’ an organization in Eureka that helps assist individuals with brain injuries of all kind.

Just because people think that they drive perfectly, does not mean that accidents won’t happen. Unfortunately, an accident nearly always involves two or more people. Sometimes, you might even just have an accident due to slipping on ice or wet ground.

It’s incredibly important to make sure that you do wear a seatbelt as this can be the difference between life and death.

You might still be injured though, a seatbelt can’t stop you from being injured.
