Auto Seat Belts, Saving Lives Since 1968 (part I)

For those who dislike government action, here's something to think about. The Government mandated seatbelts as standard equipment in 1968 and, although usage was low at first, 329,715 lives have been saved since. Other Government supported safety changes have saved another 300,000 lives.

Public education increased usage of safety belts from 14% to 70% by the 1990's, now usage is 88.5%, but what do we do about that last "diehard" 11.5%?

1.) The driver is in charge and he or she should demand seatbelt use.

2.) Impress on the unbelted that in a crash they are more likely to die and more likely to kill other passengers in the car who are belted.

3.) Impress on the unbelted that since 1975 378,983 people just like them have been killed as a result of not wearing a seatbelt.

Thanks to the August 16, 2016 issue of Consumer Reports for these facts and figures.
