Seat Belt PSA: Watch What Happens To Passengers Inside A Bus That Flips Over

A show on CCTV-13 recently aired a segment from the Zhejiang Traffic Bureau that was essentially a morbid seat belt PSA. We’ve seen these type of public service announcements before — there was this GIF from the Shanghai Highway Patrol in July warning people to take care of their tires — and like always, questions of their efficacy take a backseat to the shocking footage itself.

Watch what happens when a bus rolls over with 21 passengers (not including driver), one of whom, we’re told, died. Says the cop who is interviewed: “We found out, after watching surveillance tape” — what, seven and a half months after the fact? — “none of the passengers wore their seat belts.” Imagine that.

One is now forced to ask: what about the 99 percent of buses that don’t have safety belts?

We’re not told how the accident happened. #MortalCoil. Ku6 video for those in China after the jump.
