Using seat belts important for road safety

I noticed on my drives around Bandar Seri Begawan that people drive without using their seat belts.

I estimate that 20 per cent are not using seat belts.

I also saw passengers in the front seat not using them and often, holding a child as well.

Sadly, children, who usually sit in the rear passenger seats, also rarely use seat belts. This begs the question if driving schools are teaching learners about the importance of using seat belts. From the look of it, little is taught about road safety.

This is a real concern for all road users, in the long term.
