Buckle Up


Be the BUCKLED UP driver. Over the past five years, failure to wear a seat belt has been a contributing factor in about one of every five motor vehicle fatalities on Maryland roadways.

This is a Maryland State Police announcement.

Buckling up is simple to do and the results can be life saving. i have no idea why some people still resist.

When we sit in our car, the seat belt "presents" itself to us.  We do this automatically, but it is fun to have that happen.  Have a great weekend. A

I'm not going to be throwing caution to the wind by not wearing my seatbelt in the near future Roy Kelley

I learned at an young age to wear my seat belt, first thing I do when I get into the car. Especially important in my summer sports car.

Hi Roy Kelley - When we first had to start wearing seat belts (a million years ago) If I forgot to put it and remembered at the end of the drive, I would buckle up and then undo it. That helped get me in the habit.

Isn’t it amazing that now it seems odd not to get buckled up?

Oh I forgot to mention in my previous comment.  What kind of flower did you share in this post?  It's not your usual bright and cheery flower... but as you said,  its a Winter Color!🌹😁🥀

Morning Roy.

Been there seen that, what a wonderful piece of the vehicle.  Now, if you don't buckle up there is a fine that goes along with it.

That's a pretty high fatality rate, Roy. Never understood why anyone resists wearing a seat belt... numbers show that deaths are reduced by 50% when a belt is worn.

Hello Roy - a simple enough "thing to do" yet incredibly an issue that still exists.  A reminder that never seems to tire(sorry for the use of automotive puns).

It's an amazing discovery to learn such a high incidence in automobile injuries are attributed to folks failing to buckle up.
