Last year, 90 percent of people riding in a vehicle were buckled up. But that means nearly one of every 10 people was not. What are these people thinking? So many times we read about a crash in which the driver or passenger not wearing a seat belt was killed or seriously injured. It doesn’t have to be that way. I don’t know what will convince everyone to buckle up, but the evidence is clear.
Some people mistakenly believe you don’t need to wear a seat belt if your vehicle has air bags.
