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!
