Buckle Up PA

The Pennsylvania Law Enforcement Community is
enforcing Pennsylvania’s seatbelt and child restraint laws and reminds you
to BUCKLE UP because we care.

SAVING LIVES by Enforcing the LAW!

There are NO good excuses to not buckle up:

EXCUSE: “I’m not driving very far.”
FACT: Three out of four crashes occur within 25 miles of home.

EXCUSE: “I’m riding in the back seat.”
FACT: You can still be thrown from a vehicle even if you are riding in the back seat. If you are unrestrained, you also pose a risk to others in the vehicle.

EXCUSE: “I’m driving at night and the police won’t know.”
FACT: Police departments are increasing nighttime enforcement. In addition, there are more high-risk drivers (i.e. impaired drivers and drowsy drivers) on the roads at night increasing the risk for a crash.

EXCUSE: “I’m pregnant and the seat belt is too tight.”
FACT:  Wearing your seat belt is the best defense for you and your baby in the event of a crash. Adjust the lap belt so that it fits snugly over the hips and pelvis and below your abdomen.

EXCUSE: “I don’t want to be trapped by a seat belt in case my vehicle catches fire or is submerged in water.”
FACT: Less than one-half of one percent of all injury crashes involve fire or submersion. National research has shown that you are 25 times more likely to be killed if you are ejected from the vehicle.
