Seatbelts play a crucial role in saving lives during accidents. However, if the impact thrusts your body against the belt, you might develop bruises on your neck, chest, back, or belly. Bruises can alter skin color and lead to swelling. Scrapes can cause pain, redness, swelling, and bleeding. These striking portraits reveal the aftermath of seatbelt bruises, emphasizing the importance of wearing them while traveling.

The NZ Transport Agency (NZTA) initiated a campaign to decrease road fatalities in New Zealand. According to their findings, around 90 individuals die annually due to not wearing seat belts, with a significant number being young men in rural regions. Consequently, these portraits showcase 10 actual crash survivors, with their post-accident injuries recreated by the SFX makeup company PROFX.
