Consider these facts:
1. Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to save your life in a crash
2. In a crash, an unbuckled passenger can become a projectile and increase the risk of hurting or killing others in the car by 40 percent.
3. Someone not wearing a seat belt is 30 times more likely to be ejected from a vehicle during a crash.
4. Three out of four people ejected during a crash, die from their injuries.
If you listen really closely… they are saying “buckle, buckle!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SR46UW9HPXo
