This Northern Ireland TV campaign “dramatises the lethal and devastating consequences of not wearing a seatbelt”.

The campaign focuses on back seat passengers, following a study which shows that while the overall rate for seatbelt wearing in Northern Ireland is 98%, 5% of back seat passengers are not buckling up.

DOE research also suggests there are lapses during which young people unbuckle for a short period to chat or share photos on mobile phones etc.

The commercial shows how an unbelted passenger can become a ‘lethal missile’ inside a vehicle.
