Way to Buckle Up, America!

We’re proud of you!  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports the percentage of American who wear their seatbelts is at its highest ever: 86%!  With each percentage point representing about 220 lives a year, that’s a significant number of fatalities avoided.  The Pacific Northwest appears to understand the value of the seatbelt; Washington state shows 97.5% usage.  But while the numbers are good, there’s still room for improvement.  So, keep up the good work and spread the word:  seatbelts save lives!
