Buckle Up Before You Hit the Road This Thanksgiving
Thanksgiving weekend is historically one of the busiest travel times of the year. Unfortunately, this can also mean more crashes. Whether you are travelling across town or across the country to spend time with family and friends, buckle up and remind others to do the same.
From 2015 to 2019, almost half (48%) of the vehicle occupants who died in a crash were not wearing or improperly wearing a restraint. These people will not join their families at the Thanksgiving table this year. Remember, even one empty seat at the table, is TOO many.
Seat belts are the single most effective traffic safety device in vehicles today in preventing fatalities and serious injuries. The risk of a moderate to critical injury is reduced by half when wearing a seat belt in a crash. Remind yourself and your loved ones to always buckle up – every person, every trip, EVERY TIME.
