Figure  10-1.—Automatic  safety  belts  with  shoulder  harnesses. Figure 10-2.-Air bags save lives. Issuance  of  Navy  Traffic  Safety  Program, OPNAVINST  5100.12F,  authorizes  disciplinary  action for certain violations. For example, you may receive disciplinary action for failing to follow safety belt rules or for riding in the cargo areas of vehicles (in the back of a pickup truck). SAFETY  BELTS Safety belts have been provided in most vehicles for the past 20 years. The original lap seat belt provided a measure  of  safety,  but  injuries  still  occurred  when people snapped forward into the dashboard or steering wheel.  Therefore,  manufacturers  began  equipping vehicles  with  safety  belts  by  adding  shoulder  harnesses (fig.  10-1)  to  prevent  the  upper  body  from  moving forward. In some cars, the safety belt moves into place automatically when the car is started. Since 1990, some manufacturers have begun to equip vehicles with air bags (fig. 10-2) as well as safety belts.  Air  bags  have  grown  in  popularity  as  survivors have  testified  to  their  effectiveness. National statistics have shown that using safety belts saves lives. Many states now have laws requiring the use of safety belts. The Navy requires personnel to use safety belts at all times. All Navy motor vehicles must be equipped with safety  belts  for  the  driver  and  passengers.  Each  person riding in, or operating, a Navy motor vehicle must wear a safety belt. If the vehicle does not have a safety belt at 10-2
