Why is Click It or Ticket such a focus
if 93.8 percent of people buckle up in Illinois?
- Of the 950 traffic fatalities
involving occupants with recorded seat belt and
restraint usage to date in Illinois, 43 percent were
unbelted or not restrained properly in the vehicle
(1/1/17-11/14/17 crash data).
How do seat belts protect people
- The webbing spreads forces
over the strongest parts of the body;
- The retractor engages (locks)
and slows you down to keep you from hitting
other occupants or interior vehicle parts;
- They work in conjunction with
the air bags and vehicle crumple zone to best
protect you from the violent forces of a crash.
