In addition to being able to save your life, safety belts can also keep you from getting serious injuries in a car accident. The facts related to wearing seat belts are hard to ignore. Wearing your seat belt when you are riding in a car is essential to your safety. It takes you less than 10 seconds to fasten your seat belt, make sure you do it!

Benefits

Seat belts have been proven to save lives in car accidents! What better reason is there? Many states have laws that require all drivers and passengers to buckle up, so refraining from wearing your seat belt could also cost you or the person driving a hefty fine.

Step It Up

Create posters to hang up in your school or around your neighborhood, reminding people about the importance of buckling up. Educate those who see your posters, by including facts about seat belt safety.

Keep It Simple

Make sure you wear a seat belt ever time you are a passenger in a moving vehicle, no matter how safe your driver is. Encourage those around you, your friends, parents or siblings, to do the same.
