Advantages of Wearing a Seat Belt
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), safety belt laws vary from state to state. In some cases, safety belt laws only apply to the occupants of the front of the vehicle. Additionally, the NHTSA reports that over 100 teens and/ or children die every year due to riding in cargo areas of pickup trucks, a practice that is legal and exempted from safety belt laws in many states.
While vehicle deaths remain a major concern, many of these concerns can be addressed through your own implementation safe occupant protection practices such as mandating all occupants within your personal vehicle wear seat belts. To ensure that your seat belts are up to standard, be sure to check with your local dealership.
