Each year about 33,000 people are fatally injured in a motor vehicle crash. With 45 to 60 percent effectiveness, seat belts are the single most effective means of reducing the risk of dying in an accident and have reportedly saved nearly 300,000 lives since 1975.
In 2015, nearly 47 million Americans traveled for Thanksgiving with 89% of them hitting the highways, according to AAA. Due to continued, lowered gas prices, 2016 is gearing up to be just as hectic on the roads.

There are still a few people out there who think not wearing a seatbelt is safer than getting strapped in before operating a car. As a car accident attorney, Los Angeles has proven to me that is false. These mean streets and risks of getting T-boned or hit from behind are very real.
Not wearing your seat belt is considered a secondary offense in Arizona, so an officer can’t pull you over solely because you’re not wearing a seat belt. However, if you’re pulled over for another reason and aren’t buckled up, you can be ticketed.
