In the last month, 10 people have died in North Dakota due to a traffic related crash. Five of them were not wearing a seat belt.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) , seat belts reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about 50%. That should be reason enough to buckle up. But, nearly 25 % of North Dakotans do not wear their seatbelts.
As we head into summer, do yourself and your loved ones a favor. Make it a point to wear your seat belt. Every trip… Every time.
You can make a difference. Make sure everyone has a seat belt on, and NEVER drink and Drive. Drive Safe!
