More than half of teens (13 to 19 years) and adults (20 to 44 years) who died in motor vehicle crashes in 2015 were not wearing seat belts at the time of the crash. According to teendriversource.org.
It is vital the teens and drivers of all ages immediately put on and adjust their seat belt as soon as they enter the car and beofre they begin to drive.
Also, a seat belt use is one of the most effective ways to save lives and reduce injuries in crashes. Seat belts prevent drivers and passengers from being ejected during a crash. according to teendriversource.org
Did you know that teens who say that their parents set rules and monitor their driving are twice as likely to wear a seat belt as a driver or passenger as teens with less involved parents according to teendrivers.org
So parents and teens, make the most if driving but always remember to buckle up and stay buckled up for the entire drive whether you are the driver or not.
