Seat belts. The dangers of not buckling up are greater then you think.
The huge risk of not wearing your seat belt. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, only 7 percent of motorists don’t wear a seat belt while driving, or riding in a car, but they account for 47 percent of all occupants killed in car crashes. It’s even worse at night, where 55 percent of those killed were unrestrained.
For more information and resources on what you can do to protect you and your family, check out the NHTSA’S Seat Belt website, as well as other NCSA Publication Topics, including, Alcohol/Alcohol-Impaired Driving, All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs), Bicyclists/Pedalcyclists, Booster Seat, Child Safety Seats, teen and elderly driving statistics and much more.
