Safety
belts
Never
rely
on
airbags
alone
for
protection.
Even
when
they
deploy,
airbags
provide
only
additional
protection.
Airbags
are
not
supposed
to
deploy
in
all
kinds
of
accidents.
Although
your
Audi
is
equipped
with
airbags,
all
vehicle
occupants,
in-
cluding
the
driver,
must
wear
safety
belts
cor-
rectly
in
order
to
minimize
the
risk of
severe
in-
jury
or
death
in
a
crash.
Remember
too,
that
airbags
will
deploy
only
once
and
that
your
safety
belts
are
always
there
to
of-
fer
protection
in
those
accidents
in
which
airbags
are
not
supposed
to
deploy
or
when
they have
al-
ready
deployed.
Unbelted
occupants
can
also
be
thrown
out
of
the
vehicle
where
even
more
severe
or
fatal
injuries
can
occur.
It
is
also
important
for
the
rear
passengers
to
wear
safety
belts
correctly.
Unbelted
passengers
in
the
rear
seats
endanger
not
only
themselves
but
also
the
driver
and
other
passengers
=>
fig.
228.
In
a
frontal
collision
they
will
be
thrown
forward
violently,
where
they
can
hit
and
injure
the
driver
and/or
front
seat
passenger.

People
think
it's
possible
to
use
the
hands
to
brace
the
body
in
a
minor
collision.
It's
simply
not
true!

Safety
belts
used
properly
can
make
a
big
differ-
ence.
Safety
belts
help
to
keep
passengers
in
their
seats,
gradually
reduce
energy
levels
ap-
plied
to
the
body
in
an
accident,
and
help
prevent
the
uncontrolled
movement
that
can
cause
seri-
ous
injuries.
In
addition,
safety
belts
reduce
the
danger
of
being
thrown
out
of
the
vehicle.
Safety
belts
attach
passengers
to
the
car
and
give
them
the
benefit
of
being
slowed
down
more
gently
or
“softly”
through
the
“give”
in
the
safety
belts,
crush
zones
and
other
safety
features
engi-
neered
into
today's
vehicles.
By
“absorbing”
the
kinetic
energy
over
a
longer
period
of
time,
the
safety
belts
make
the
forces
on
the
body
more
“tolerable”
and
less
likely
to
cause
injury.
Although
these
examples
are
based
on a
frontal
collision,
safety
belts can
also
substantially
re-
duce
the
risk
of
injury
in
other
kinds
of
crashes.
So,
whether
you're
on
a
long
trip
or
just
going
to
the
corner
store,
always
buckle
up
and
make
sure
others
do,
too.
Accident
statistics
show
that
vehi-
cle
occupants
properly
wearing
safety
belts
have
a
lower
risk
of
being
injured
and
a
much
better
chance
of
surviving
an
accident.
Properly
using
safety
belts
also
greatly
increases
the
ability
of
the
supplemental
airbags
to
do
their
job
in
a
col-
lision.
For
this
reason,
wearing
a
safety
belt
is
le-
gally
required
in
most
countries
including
much
of
the
United
States
and
Canada.
Although
your
Audi
is
equipped
with
airbags,
you
still
have
to
wear
the
safety
belts
provided.
Front
airbags,
for
example,
are
activated
only
in
some
frontal
collisions.
The
front
airbags
are
not
acti-
vated
in
all
frontal
collisions,
in
side
and
rear
col-
lisions,
in
rollovers
or
in
cases
where
there
is
not
enough
deceleration
through
impact
to
the
front
of
the
vehicle.
The
same
goes
for
the
other
airbag
systems
in
your
Audi.
So,
always
wear
your
safety
belt
and
make
sure
everybody
in
your
vehicle
is
properly
restrained!
