Stop With Excuses, BUCKLE UP!
"[Agency Name] is reminding residents of the importance of wearing a seat belt. The consequences of not wearing, or improperly wearing, a seat belt are clear:
- Buckling up helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle, whereas not buckling up can result in being ejected from the vehicle in a crash, which is almost always deadly.
- Airbags are not enough to protect you; in fact, the force of an airbag can seriously injure or even kill you if you’re not buckled up.
- Improperly wearing a seat belt, such as putting the strap below your arm, puts you and your children at risk in a crash."
