Newton's First Law Of Motion

Seatbelt Saftey

Newton's First Law States

An object in motion tends to stay in motion and an object at rest tends to stay at rest unless an unbalanced force is acted upon it.

With Seatbelts

With seatbelts, many people live. Since seatbelts are very important to our society, you really need to wear them. Newton's first law states that an object at rest tends to stay at rest unless acted upon by an unbalanced force.

Without Seatbelts

Each year many people die, from severe injuries. Car accidents even appear to be worst when people don't wear your seatbelt.


Newton's law of motion, further states that if an object stays in motion, it doesn't move. If an object is in motion then it continues to keep moving unless something, or an unbalanced force acts upon it. The image states that the rollercoaster is still in motion because an unbalanced force hadn't acted upon it.
