CLICK IT OR TICKET CAMPAIGN

The Office of the Sheriff sharing information and data from the DMV of Virginia.

In the instant you buckle up when driving or riding in the front seat of a car or truck, you cut your risk of a fatal injury in a crash nearly in half. That’s a massive return on the investment of the brief moment it takes to put on a seat belt. In 2016, seat belts saved nearly 15,000 lives. But nearly 2,500 more lives would have been saved if everyone had buckled up.

Recent data shows, as a nation, seat belt usage has increased, but now is not the time to let our guard down.

Clearly, the odds of surviving a crash shift massively in your favor if you first buckle up before taking to the road. Additionally, your vehicle’s other safety features—particularly air bags—won’t work as effectively if you’re not buckled up. In fact, the force of an air bag can seriously injure or even kill you if you’re not wearing a seat belt when it deploys in a crash.

 Belts and bags work together for your safety.
