Buckle Up for National Seat Belt Day

 

Four out of five adults say they don’t always use a seat belt when taking short trips or when in the backseat of a taxi or rideshare vehicle – that’s according to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). Together, Volvo Car USA, Uber, and the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA), want to change that by declaring November 14 National Seat Belt Day.

Launched by Volvo in 1959, the three-point safety belt also celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, making National Seat Belt Day particularly special and timely. Estimated to have saved more than one million lives since its introduction, the safety belt is considered one of the most important safety features ever invented. However, its effectiveness is only as good as its use; on National Seat Belt Day Volvo Cars and Uber ask that you remind everyone you know to buckle up.
