10% of people are not wearing seatbelts in U.S. study

When it comes to driver safety it doesn't get much more important than wearing a seatbelt. That is why it is surprising that data was released by the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that claims about 90.1 percent of people wear seatbelts while driving during the day. Although this is up from last years percentage of 88.5, it still leaves a lot to question about why 10% are not strapping in their seatbelt.

Of course there are some reasons people will have like they aren't comfortable or they like to have no restraint but it still doesn't justify the possibility of a minor accident turning into a more serious injury just because you didn't feel like wearing it.

If 10% of the U.S. population is not wearing seatbelts than thats well over 30,000,000 people which is extremely high although people will speculate how accurate the statistics can be. Even though accidents are rare, it is always good to be prepared. Plain and simple seatbelts save lives and will continue to do so for years to come.
