The vehicle demonstrates the drastic difference a properly buckled seat belt can make in a rollover crash. The demonstration will show three scenarios using a crash test dummy to represent a driver properly buckled, improperly buckled (with the seat belt underneath the arm) and unbuckled.
In 2020, Maryland experienced 573 fatalities on its roadways, and preliminary data shows 124 of those killed were not using a seat belt. Additionally, an annual survey indicated that Maryland’s seat belt use last year dropped below 90% for the first time in years. Being buckled during a crash helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle and helps avoid passengers from becoming projectiles within the vehicle. In the event of a rollover crash, being ejected from a vehicle is almost always deadly.
While the Rollover Simulator will be at the Maryland State Fair this holiday weekend, all motorists are reminded that no matter where you travel, it is critical to follow the rules of the road and Be the Driver Who Saves Lives.
