Seatbelt use in motor vehicles saves lives

The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) has confirmed what we have all believed to be true; that is the fact that seatbelt use in all motor vehicles saves lives.

By carefully analyzing motor vehicles accidents and fatality rates, the NHTSA has recently reported that the use of seat belts in passenger vehicles saved approximately 12,546 lives in 2010 alone. For the five year period between 2006 to 2010 this number is reported at over 69,000 lives across the nation.

The National Highway Safety Administration reports that in 2010 in Florida an estimated Florida 769 lives were saved by seat belt use , 151 lives saved by frontal airbags and 111 lives saved by the use of motorcycle helmets.

Given the rising statistics in auto accidents due to technology and other new distractions on the road , it is refreshing to learn that advancements have been made in improving safety statistics.Miami auto accident lawyer urges and reminds everyone to remember to buckle up always.
