According to U.S. Dept. of Transportation, seatbelts saved approximately 15,000 lives in 2017. Wearing a seatbelt is one of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make. Here are a few reasons why it is so important to wear your seatbelt:
- Air bags are not enough – just because your vehicle has air bags does not mean you can skip the seatbelt, still wear it.
- It can reduce injuries – wearing your seatbelt reduces your risk of sustaining injuries like whiplash and other head injuries.
- You can avoid a ticket – in Louisiana and most other states you are required to wear a seatbelt when traveling or you can be ticketed.
- They keep you safe – if you are in an accident, wearing a seatbelt can keep you safe and prevent you from being ejected from your vehicle.
No matter where you are going, with who, or in what vehicle, it is imperative to always wear your seatbelt, it can save your life.
