In 2013, seat belts saved an estimated 12,584 lives. Yet 49 percent of occupants killed in 2013 weren’t restrained. Seat belts are for protection, and the high-visibility enforcement mobilization to crack down on violators is not about increasing revenue – it’s about saving lives.
Use these materials to create a safety campaign emphasizing the use of seat belts in your community. This mobilization was created to crack down on violators 24-7, but a strong enforcement effort is urged between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. due to the significant number of violators and fatal crashes during this time.
