Here are some facts about seat belt use:
In 2011 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide.
In fatal crashes during 2011, 77 percent of passenger vehicle occupants who were thrown from their vehicles were killed. However, only 1 percent of crash victims who were buckled up were totally ejected from their vehicles, compared to 31 percent of those who were unbelted.
Motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in a rollover crash if they are buckled up.
Pick up truck drivers and passengers are also at risk. In 2011, 65 percent of pick up truck occupants who were killed in traffic crashes were not buckled up at the time of the crashes, compared to 46 percent of passenger car occupants who were killed from not buckling up.
The Norway Police Department is joining with other state and local law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates across the country to help save lives by strongly enforcing seat belt laws around the clock, especially at night.
