Why We Want you to Buckle Up

If you aren’t wearing a seat belt during a motor vehicle accident, the chance of serious injury may increase. Seat belts can help prevent drivers and passengers from being ejected from vehicles or thrown into the dashboards, windows, and windshields.

By buckling your seat belt, it may significantly lower the risk of getting hurt in an accident. Here are several seat belt safety tips to remember:

  • Always wear your seat belt—no matter what the road conditions are or how far you are traveling.
  • Inspect your seat belts regularly for wear and tear.
  • Seat belts are made to restrain only one person each—don’t try to “double-up.”
  • Seat belts are only effective when worn as intended.

So, please, buckle your belt. It can help save your life!

New York State Child Safety Restraint Law

New York State law requires all children under age four to be secured in a car seat and all children who have not reached their eighth birthday to be in a child restraint system. The type of car seat or restraint system required varies according to the child’s age and size. For guidelines on choosing the correct system for your child, as well as advice on installation and a list of permanent child safety seat fitting stations in the state, please visit the New York State DMV website.

The Spring 2019 Contest has Concluded. Thank you to everyone who participated & pledged to Buckle their Belt!
