National Safety Council, Nebraska created “Use Protection” to remind your teen to buckle up. Pledge to Buckle Up today!
Proper Seat Belt Use
Improperly wearing a seat belt can carry the same penalty as failing to wear a seat belt. Improper belt use may also cause injury in some crashes.
What About Airbags?
Airbags are inportant, but the belt holds an occupant in place for the bag to be effective. Airbags inflate quickly and powerfully. They can actually inflict damage if the occupant is not positioned correctly to receive the airbag's protection.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Campaigns
The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) created several seat belt campaigns to assist in community education efforts. Campaigns are complete with downloadable posters, PSAs, web ads and more. Visit NHTSA Traffic Safety Marketing for materials.
