Wearing your seat belt is very important prevent an injury in a car, truck or motorcycle accident.
Tuesday, October 3, 2017: From 2011 to 2015, an estimated 343,000 children ages 8-14 were injured while traveling in passenger vehicles, and an additional 1,692 children were killed. A full 50% of those who died were unrestrained at the time of the crash.
The Seat Belt Safety campaign pulls from the insight that as a parent, sometimes you have to let your kids have their way. But your kid’s safety should never be up for negotiation, no matter how much they push back on the seat belts being uncomfortable,unnecessary for just a “short drive” or any other excuses. The campaign utilizes the concept that “life as a parent is full of compromises, but seat belt safety for my children is not up for negotiation.”
Seat belts save lives every day. They can only save lives, however, if they’re used, and there are still many people in America who don’t buckle up. Wearing a seat belt can reduce the risk of a fatal injury by 45%. This is why your community needs to know that wearing a seat belt can make the difference between life and death.
Never give up, until they buckle up.

Please make sure all of your passengers are buckled up and don't forget about yourself. It's proven - you have a better chance of not getting seriously injured or even killed - if you always wear your seat belt.
