The National Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization is May 20 - June 2, 2019.
In 2017 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts.
Seat belts have been proven to be one of the best ways to save your life in a crash. Yet many still don’t buckle up. Worse still, not wearing a seat belt is a habit that will pass on to impressionable youth, who in turn will think it’s safe to not buckle up. The Click It or Ticket campaign focuses on safety education, strong laws, and law enforcement officers saving lives.
From child passenger safety to drunk driving, our research covers a variety of topics in the traffic safety world. The research found here stems from focus groups held around the United States.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the National Latino Children's Institute (NLCI) developed this Web-based toolkit to educate immigrant Hispanics about the importance of seat belts and increase the use in the population.Hazlo por tu familia, ¡abróchate el cinturón! Do it for your family, buckle up!According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, traffic crashes are the leading cause of death in the United States among Hispanics under age 34.NLCI learned that the greatest motivator for underscoring the importance of using a seat belt every time immigrants rode in a vehicle were the emotions evoked by family. Using images and a few phrases, along with reminders of the importance of the family were the best motivators to increase seat belt use.
The National Child Passenger Safety Board has been established to provide program direction and technical guidance to states, communities and organizations as a means to maintain a credible, standardized child passenger training and certification program.
