The lap belt should be worn as low on the hips as possible. In a crash. this applies force to the strong pelvic bones. And you'd be less likely to slide under the lap belL If you slid under it. the belt would apply force at your abdomen. This could can so serious or even fatal injuries. The shoulder helt should go over the shoulder and across the chest. These parts of the body are best able to take belt restraining Forces.
The safety belt locks if there's a sudden stop or a crash.
It‘s possible that an automatic belt could keep you from fully opening a door. That can happen if the door was slammed shul very hard. .Iust close the door all the way, then slowly open it. If that doesn't ﬁx it. then your Buick needs service.
We hope you‘ll always keep your automatic belt buckled. However, you may need to uobwzkle it in an emergency. And you would need to unbuckle it to let
someone get into the center front seat posilion. if your vehicle has one.
