Avoid a Connecticut Auto Accident: Buckle Up

Thursday, September 6th, 2018 by | Posted In: Auto Accidents

Did you know that using your seat belt can reduce your risk of a Connecticut auto accident by half? It is one of the most immediate things you can do as a driver and passenger to reduce your risk of serious injury while traveling in a motor vehicle.

There is a common misconception that if you are in a bigger vehicle, you are safer. In 2016, 61% of truck occupants who were not wearing seat belts were killed in crashes versus 42% in passenger vehicles.

Stay buckled in the back seat. In 2016, 47% of unrestrained front seat passengers were killed while 57% of unrestrained back seat passengers were killed.

Those in rural areas should also buckle up as there is a higher incidence of crashes in those areas versus urban: a nearly 50% difference nationwide.
