 NATIONAL HIGHWAY SAFETY NEWS

 

NT14-66125 Thanksgiving_840x440_V2a_STATIC-01.jpg 

Whether you're traveling across town or across the country, it's essential to always wear your seat belt.  Thanksgiving weekend, millions of Americans will hit the roads, eager to spend time with family and friends.  It's one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately, that means more crashes.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is reminding everyone that seat belts save lives through the campaign Buckle Up—Every Trip. Every Time.

Buckling up gives the best defense against injury or death in a crash.  The facts don't lie: when you wear your seat belt as a front-seat occupant of a passenger car, your risk of fatal injury goes down by 45 percent.  For light-truck occupants, that risk is reduced by 60 percent.  Surviving your Thanksgiving drive this year—and making it to next Thanksgiving—can be as simple as buckling up.  In the last decade, seat belts have saved the lives of more than 100,000 people in the United States.  Those people are thankful they wore their seat belts.

Won't you wear yours?

Buckle Up—Every Trip. Every Time.


 

Drive safely this Thanksgiving.  For more information, please visit www.nhtsa.gov/risky-driving/seat-belts.
