With warm weather and summer fast approaching, families are on the road a bit more and safety matters. Seat belts saves lives every day. It is so important to take 2 seconds to make your seat belt, and those riding with you, click. Seat belts only work when they are in use and we still have too many people in Nebraska who don’t buckle up each trip – every trip.
Wearing your seat belt can reduce your risk of a fatal injury, in a collision, by at least 45%. This is why it is so important to make sure you are buckled up; it does not matter if your trip is 10 miles or 100 miles, wearing your seat belt can save your life in a crash!
In addition, remember every child must be in a federally approved car seat/booster seat up to age 8. It is Nebraska law. For more information go to NDOT CPS.
