Who hasn't heard the phrase, Buckle up? Of course everyone has and realizes that buckling up your seat belt is the best way to protect against serious injury or death in a motor vehicle accident. The cost of unbuckled occupants goes beyond those killed and the loss to their families. We all pay for those who don't buckle up in higher insurance costs, higher health care expenses and lost productivity.
UCLA Transportation, Insurance & Risk Management and Environmental Health & Safety are once again sponsoring, “Buckle Up Bruins,” a campus-wide seat belt awareness campaign beginning in May. “Click it or Ticket,” the nationwide seat belt campaign, will start mid-May and run until June 1, 2014.
When it comes to collisions, wearing a seat belt is simply the most effective way to reduce injuries and fatalities. How effective? Seat belts save over 12,000 lives every year – and one of them could be yours!
