You weren’t wearing your seat belt. So what? You’re a safe driver. You’ll be ok…right? Wrong! It’s time to face the facts: In 2013, there were 9,580 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. Why did you just get that ticket? Because the time to buckle up is before you’ve been ejected from your vehicle. In real life you don’t get a second chance. That’s why cops give tickets.
