Seats and Restraints

Seats and Restraints: Ensuring Safety for All

The seat and restraint category in a roadworthy inspection prioritizes two crucial safety aspects:

  1. Operator Safety: This ensures the driver or rider can maintain proper control of the vehicle. The examiner will check the functionality and secure mounting of seats, seatbelts, and any child restraint anchor points.
  2. Public Safety for Occupants: The inspection verifies the effectiveness of restraints in protecting passengers during a collision. This includes examining the condition of seatbelts, ensuring proper deployment of airbags (if applicable), and confirming all occupants have access to functional restraints.

By thoroughly assessing these areas, inspectors guarantee that seats and restraints effectively safeguard everyone in the vehicle.
