A Rollover Story: Why you should buckle up every time you get into a car

Everyone should be buckling up when they get into a vehicle, no matter where you sit.

That’s the message from Mississippi Highway Patrol as they travel the state with their rollover simulator.

The machine shows you what it looks like when a rollover crash happens at 40 miles per hour. Just 40 MPH:

MHP says vehicles usually crash at speeds higher than 70MPH, and if you’re ejected from the car at that rate of speed, you’re likely¬†not to survive.

Buckling up isn’t just for people in the front seat either. If you are riding in the back seat, you should click it too, otherwise you become a human projectile and could kill the people in the front seat.

Bottom line: buckle up, no matter where in the car you’re sitting.
