So THAT’S What Happens When You Don’t Wear A Seatbelt And Crash Into A Toll Plaza…

It doesn’t matter if it’s “uncomfortable” or not “cool” to wear a seatbelt – you still need to use it. We all have friends who never buckle up, and I used to not give a shit about that until I saw this gif:

 

One woman during this car accident is wearing a seatbelt and the other is not. The one wearing the seatbelt stayed in her seat, but the woman not wearing one basically turned into a human pinball and ricocheted all over the car. Imagine getting into an accident wearing your seatbelt and being completely fine…only to have your dipshit friend bash you in the head with their hip because they weren’t wearing one.

And if that’s not good enough of a reason to wear a seatbelt, peep this guy that drove full-speed into a Florida toll plaza without clicking it:

Seatbelts: Just wear them.

The car slams into a barrier, and the impact of the crash sends the passenger flying through the air. Is that the call you want your parents to get at 7:15 a.m. on a Tuesday? That their kid was too stupid to wear his seatbelt and went flying through the windshield?

I know I sound pissy, but whenever it’s the SIMPLEST THING you have to do to keep yourself safe and people can’t even handle that, I get annoyed.

(Of course, this is also coming from the girl who doesn’t put on sunscreen during her first trip to the beach of the season, and is always baffled at my lobster complexion afterwards.)

Thankfully, Daily Mail reports that all the passengers in the car “not only survived the crash, but they have all been treated and released from the hospital.” As for what caused the crash itself, a state trooper wrote in his report that “the driver of the car appeared to be fatigued.”
