SAFETY MOMENT: Seatbelts save lives

Seat belts save lives. Seatbelts are always required at our facility no matter traveling 2 feet or 2000 feet. We have noticed on our local roads that some refrain from making this safe choice. According to the NHTSA in the Northeast Region the seatbelt use rate stands at 91.1%. Proper use of seatbelts keeps drivers and passengers safe and secure inside a vehicle. And airbags are a supplement to seat belt use, not a substitute.
