Robert is a 17 year old boy who excels in both academics and sports. He even has a full-ride scholarship to the infamous university, UCLA, for football.
On a Friday night, after Robert finished his last essay for AP English, he gets a call from his best guy friend, John. John reminds Robert that the football team is going out for pizza at the local pizza parlor in town in 10 minutes, and his presence is needed and required because he is the captain of the football team.
Robert is now in rush. He completely forgot about the team meeting up and how he needs to be there !
Robert knows that wearing a seatbelt is important, but he feels that the concept is so redundant and time-consuming that he disregards it and doesn't wear his safety belt. Robert was so in a rush that he didn't notice the car that collided with his vehicle. He could barely think when his body was thrown outside of the vehicle through the windshield. He didn't know that he torn will tear his ACL and lose his football scholarship.
More than half of teens (13-19 years) and adults (20-24 years) who died in crashes in 2016 were not buckled at the time of the crash.
Seat belt use saved an estimate of 14,668 lives
Of total fatal accidents, 48.1% were not wearing seat belts.
