Wearing seat belts is the single most effective way to prevent serious injuries and save people from dying in car crashes. According to the NHTSA, seat belt use in passenger vehicles saved nearly 15,000 lives in 2017.
Buckling up is one of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make. In Oklahoma, buckling up is also the law according to the Oklahoma Mandatory Seat Belt Use Act. With this law:
- Drivers can get pulled over solely for not wearing your seat belt.
- Both driver and front seat passenger must wear seat belts at all times.
If cited for a seat belt violation, expect to pay a fine. But the true cost for not wearing a seat belt could be your life. Buckle up, every trip, every time.
