OPP are amping up their Seat Belt Campaign over the Easter long weekend. Even though there has been a steady decrease of seat belt related deaths over the past 20 years, there are still individuals who don’t buckle up.
“The evidence that supports the effectiveness of seat belt use remains irrefutable. The odds of surviving or avoiding serious injuries in a collision are stacked against those who are not restrained in their seat. In exchange for the few seconds it takes to buckle up, you can cross this risk off the checklist of things that threaten your life on the road.” – OPP Deputy Commissioner Brad Blair, Provincial Commander, Traffic Safety & Operational Support.
OPP also remind drivers to have another look at car seats and booster seats to make sure they’re installed correctly.
