Report: Most adults wear a seatbelt

Posted On Wed, January 5, 2011

Law enforcement officials across the country have tried to increase seatbelt use among motor vehicle occupants.

Research from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals such efforts may be paying off. Nearly 6 out of 7 adults report wearing a seatbelt on a regular basis.

CDC Injury Center director Linda Degutis says statistics suggest greater enforcement of seatbelt laws are paying off.

"This indicates that primary enforcement laws, paired with vigorous enforcement programs, get more people to wear seat belts," says Degutis. "We know that buckling up can make a life-saving difference."

While such statistics indicate buckling up is something many people do frequently, 1 in 7 adults admit to not wearing a seatbelt.

Risky behaviors, habits and careers can make a person's life insurance premiums soar. It's not uncommon for an insurance provider to increase rates for those who are thought to be a higher liability to cover than others. Those who are safe and healthy are most likely to realize optimal pricing.
