Is it compulsory to wear a seat belt in India? The Central Government of India is developing rules & regulations on traffic in India. These must be abided by the proper management of road traffic and casualties.

 Wearing a seat belt in India aur baaki pate ki baatein:

  • Every driver and passenger must wear a seat belt for all kinds of road and side-road driving. 
  • The use of a seat belt certainly would not reduce traffic accidents. However, if accidents occur, death will be prevented. The outcome can be catastrophic.
  • India is the third-largest nation in terms of population, and 11% of global road deaths happen in India.
  • If a car is driving, there is a risk of someone getting a foot or stray animal between the lanes. The driver can save that jerk from dying if a sudden brake is applied, but at the same time the driver is not wearing a seat belt, the person might be affected.
  • It has been calculated that the chances of recovery from the car crash are more if someone is wearing a seat belt, sitting next to the driver (than if they do not wear a seat belt).
  • Children in the car can ride with a seat belt in their back seat.
