Unbuckled Passengers at Risk in Greenville, SC Car Accidents
Seat belts save lives. The evidence is conclusive. All of the available data shows that there is a significant increase in the likelihood of surviving a car accident when the participants are properly buckled up. Because of this, most states have now mandated that seat belts must be worn when a vehicle is in use. Greenville, SC is one of these states. Therefore, if you are not wearing a seat belt, a police officer has the right to pull you over and issue you a ticket. Repeat offenses will result in more severe fines.

One big way to increase driver safety is wearing seat belts. You should wear a seat belt whenever you are in a vehicle. It might literally save your life.
How do we get drivers to understand and recognize the dangers of not wearing a seat belt? We think that education is the only way. Perhaps this could be done in an educational program that is required before drivers are able to get their license. However, this is not full proof, as some people will opt to not wear their seat belts, despite the obvious risks involved in doing that. These individuals are only hurting themselves.
