The Importance Of Seat Belt Wearing!
Did you know that one out of every five drivers will be involved in a traffic crash this year? That’s a pretty high number if you ask me. Now just imagine if those drivers involved in the crash weren’t wearing a seat belt. Whether it be a minor fender bender or a major accident wearing a seat belt is no joke. Approximately 35,000 people die each year in a motor vehicle accident. About 50 percent (17,000) of these people could have been saved if they wore their seat belts. I can understand how sometimes it is difficult to explain to your kids the importance of wearing a seat belt. When I was younger I thought I was invincible. Nothing could hurt me, and I couldn’t get into a car accident. Trust me ladies and gents we all know it can happen. I found this video about the importance of seat belt safety and I really think it is a great video that you can share with your entire family.
Parents embrace the seat belt and wear the seat belt. Your kids will mimic what they see. Drive Safely!
