Calling Shotgun Could Kill You

Calling Shotgun Could Kill You

 Posted by:    Apr 28, 2014  

The next time you call “shotgun” to sit in the front passenger seat, you may want to think twice. Studies confirm that the front passenger seat is the most unsafe seat in the car if an accident occurs. You are 25% more likely to die in a car accident if you sit in the front seat as opposed to a rear seat. Statistically, it is even safer to be the driver, because drivers instinctively steer away from the impact in the last seconds before a collision. It was reported that 5100 people died last year in the front passenger seat.

In terms of the backseat, the safest position is the back middle seat, assuming you are using your seatbelt. Without a seatbelt, the back middle seat is by far the most unsafe position. The second safest seat is the back passenger seat, which is slightly safer than the seat behind the driver.

No matter what the circumstances of your motor vehicle collision, if you have been injured as the result of someone else's carelessness, you need to protect your rights. Call Anderson Hemmat today for a free personal injury consultation.
