"Seat belts: You might be thinking, really? Isn’t this fairly basic knowledge? Since it remains the most important piece of safety equipment, we’re revisiting proper buckling-up. Long stretches of highway can sometimes result in occupants slipping into what they think is a more comfortable belted position, but remember, you need to ensure that it tightly encircles your hips, not your waist. Never place the shoulder belt behind your back or under your arm."
