Seat Belt Safety

Seat belts save lives. Buckle up, every trip, every time.

Seat Belt Safety

Although the use of seat belts has risen 1.5 percent in the last year, there are still individuals who buckle up on some occasions but not on others. Wearing a seat belt is one of the most effective and proven means of reducing the likelihood of death and serious injury in a crash.

Alabama’s seat belt law requires that all front-seat occupants, regardless of age, be restrained.
