Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for 15 to 20 year-olds in the United States. The majority of these deaths involve unbuckled teens, drivers, and passengers (DMV.org). Seat belt use is one of the most effective ways to save lives and reduce injuries in crashes. Teens, as both passengers and drivers, have the lowest rate of seat belt use of any age group, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
