Seat Belt Safety

Always wear a seat belt or always suffer the consequences


Seat belts protect people from needless death and injury. But whether it is because they are in a hurry, distracted, or they simply forget, many people don’t wear their seat belts, and thousands die as a result. CDC recommends effective, well-enforced seat belt laws to ensure that every person in every seat buckles up on every trip.

On Average

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 15,000 lives are saved each year in the United States because drivers and their passengers were wearing seat belts when they were in a road traffic crash.

CDC report that in the United States alone, in their study of seat-belt use from 1975-2008 an estimated 255,000 lives have been from fatal crashes.
