This PSA is made because the use of seatbelts, and it is dropping and it is causing the population to decrease. If people would wear their seatbelts, the population would increase instead of decreasing. According to NHTSA it states that, " Of the 37,133 people killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2017, 47% were not wearing seat belts. In 2017 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts.
The consequences of not wearing, or improperly wearing, a seat belt are clear:"
