Letters" Exercise safe driving out ­ on the road this summer

Published 07/27/2010, The Jamestown Sun

With the long-awaited summer season finally here, many are enjoying summer travels. The Safe Communities Coalition reminds drivers and passengers of two rules that will help everyone stay safe on the roadways. Rule No. 1: Buckle up. Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash, as well as protect yourself against impaired, aggressive, and distracted drivers. From 2004 to 2008, seat belts saved more than 75,000 lives — enough to fill a large sports arena. Developing the habit of buckling up every time you are in a vehicle will also protect you from getting a ticket.
