More than 90 people die each day in car accidents and another 3 million are injured. Two thirds of those experience long term or even permanent injuries.
Wearing a seat belt reduces your risk of death by 45% and your risk of serious injury by 50%. Yet of those killed almost half were not wearing seatbelt. So, just by wearing seatbelt we can reduce the daily death toll by over 40!

The takeaway from these statistics is that by simply wearing your seat belt.
