By now, most of us understand the importance of wearing a seatbelt. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported seat belts reduce car accident injuries by 50 percent. Another study performed by the American Automobile Association (AAA) found that seat belts have saved 300,000 lives since 1975.

So, love yourself and the occupants of your vehicle by wearing your seat belt. It is one of the safest choices you can make in a car and they truly do give the best hugs!

If you have a moment, please check out this PSA called Embrace Life (click title to access). It is a short film made for England’s Sussex Safer Roads Partnership (SSRP) in January 2010. It is about the importance of wearing seat belts. The short film became an international phenomenon after it was distributed on the internet, social networking sites, and YouTube. It gained over a million views in its first two weeks and is rated as YouTube film of all time in the education category.
