Buckle up teens
Teen drivers have the highest accident rate and the lowest seat belt use rate of any other driving demographic. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the US. And research shows that seat belts reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about half. Teens are especially bad at buckling up in the back seat. Whether your child is already driving, about to start driving or nowhere near driving, set a good example and buckle yourself and everyone else up every time you get in the car, no matter where the seat or how short the trip.
