Traffic JamThe National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has designated May 24-June 6, 2010, Click it or Ticket (CIOT) Mobilization Week. According to a James Madison University study, one out of every five drivers will be involved in a traffic crash this year. Safety belts, when used properly, reduce the number of serious traffic injuries by 50 percent and fatalities by 60-70 percent.

• Safety belt use is one of the best defenses against the unpredictable actions of drunk drivers (source: James Madison University).

• Motorists can increase safety belt usage by example and verbal reminders. Nine out of 10 people buckle up when asked (source: James Madison University).
