Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death in the United States, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is common knowledge that seat belts save lives, yet there are still folks who are not buckling up. While seatbelt use averages 88% nationally, there are still groups less likely to wear seat belts: teens, commercial drivers, males in rural areas, pick-up truck drivers, and people who have been drinking.
