How 'bout we wear our seatbelts? 

Written by

There's this viral video circulating the internet depicting a man being flung out from his SUV after rolling it on the beach. He was out looking to be having fun, tearing it up on the dunes, when all the sudden his Toyota caught a bad angle and tumbled sideways several times. 

He's so lucky to walk away from the accident. I'd be counting my blessings. The way he was ejected is just wild, and it was totally preventable. First off, maybe don't take your top-heavy FJ Cruiser on such unstable terrain at those speeds. My Blazer even has a rollover warning label. He knew the risk, or he certainly does now. 

Secondly, though most importantly, buckle up! It takes two seconds and can be the difference between life or death. It doesn't matter where you are, what car you're in, or who's driving. Just strap in, please.

As a little sidenote, I can't go without noting how bad it is to drive in saltwater. You can't do much worse to a vehicle. Well, maybe rolling it three times....

Okay, so, I'm sure you want to see it. Here ya go!
