Did You Know? Seat Belt Use At All-Time High

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has reported that seat belt use during 2009 reached an all-time high of 84 percent, up by one point from 83 percent in 2008.

According to NHTSA, seat belt use continues to be higher in “primary law” states (states in which vehicle occupants can be pulled over solely for not using seat belts), as compared to “secondary law” states.  West Virginia continues to be a “secondary law” state.
