Occupant Protection

Seat belt usage remains the most effective way to reduce injuries and fatalities from crashes on our roadways. The Northeast Florida Community Traffic Safety Team continues to promote occupant protection and buckling up as not just a safety tool, but as a safe lifestyle.

Buckle Up Religiously!

If you knew something you could do every day that would save you and your family from possible loss of life or serious injury, wouldn’t you do it? Buckle up every time you get in the car!

Buckling up is still the most effective way to save lives and reduce injuries from crashes on our roadways. Did you know that…

  • Chances are that someone you know will be involved in a vehicle crash this year.
  • You are twice as likely to be severely injured or killed when unbuckled.
  • A child unrestrained in a 30 mph crash is the same as a child dropped from a third-story window.

One Click Does the Trick … wear your seat belt and secure all children in a proper child safety seat.

Buckle Up Religiously has been part of Northeast Florida’s ongoing occupant protection campaign for more than a decade. In 2022, a new graphic was introduced, and posters and banners will be distributed throughout our Northeast Florida communities.
