As of March 31st, there have been 27 crashes on the Causeway Bridge.

Most people are familiar with the song “Hello”. It is a song by British singer-songwriter Adele, released in October 2015. It won three Grammy Awards (Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best Pop Solo Performance). Lyrically, the song focuses on themes of nostalgia and regret and plays out like a conversation.

Buckling up is the most important safety measure you can take to protect yourself in a crash as it helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle. Seat belts are also the best defense against impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers.
Each year about 33,000 people are killed in motor vehicle crashes. According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), car crashes are the leading cause of death for people age 4 and from the age of 11 through 27 in the U.S. With 45 to 60 percent effectiveness, seat belts are the single most effective means of reducing the risk of death in a crash and have saved nearly 300,000 lives since 1975 in the U.S. alone.

As Adele sings in her powerful song “Hello from the other side. I must’ve called a thousand times. To tell you I’m sorry. For everything that I’ve done”, don’t regret not using your seatbelt.
