Seatbelt Use

Driving is risky business. According to statistics gathered by the National Highway Traffic Safety Commission, one person dies in a car accident every 13 minutes. That’s about 115 people per day, and approximately 42,636 per year. While avoiding car accidents altogether may be quite difficult, wearing your seatbelt can help minimize your risk for serious injury and death.

Seatbelt Statistics

It has been proven that wearing your seatbelt greatly reduces risk of serious injury and death. According to reports, seatbelts reduce the risk of fatal injury by more than 50%. Additionally, it is estimated that seatbelts saved approximately 15,383 lives in 2006.

Fortunately, statistics indicate that seat belt use is at an all time high. In 2008, approximately 83% of drivers wore their seatbelts. This rise in seat belt use could be attributed to public awareness campaigns and slogans such “click it or ticket” which can be found on billboards and newspapers, as well as on the radio and television.
