November Tips of the Month: Buckle Up America

Florida It's the Law!

Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for ages 5 to 34. The majority of these deaths could be prevented with proper safety belt use and child passenger seat use.

According to CDC (Center Disease Control) seat belts reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by 50%. Air bags provide added protection but are not a substitute for seat belts. air bags plus seat belts provide the greatest protection for adults.

Safety belts and child passenger safety seats need to be used all the time, every time.

Drivers and passengers that do not buckle up are about 14 times more likely to die in a motor vehicle crash than those who wear their safety belt.

Children copy their parents so it is important that parents buckle up every time, all the time. Not only will parents set a good example for their children, but if they are in a crash they will not be thrown into their child causing them further injury.
