Buckle-Up—It’s the LAW
There’s no good excuse for not wearing a safety belt—it’s the LAW! Buckle up to protect yourself and your loved ones. Don’t let these excuses keep you from buckling up:
1. The belts are uncomfortable:
New safety belt designs allow for total freedom of motion while driving.
2. It’s better to be thrown from a car than trapped in it:
Three out of four people who are thrown from their vehicle die. Being thrown around inside the car can kill or injure as well.
3. I only drive around town-I’m not at risk:
Most accidents happen within seven miles of home and 80 percent of all serious injuries and deaths happen at less than 40 MPH.
4. I’m a good driver. I won’t get in an accident:
Weather, road conditions, and other drivers can cause crashes as well.
