nike zoom structure 16 nz At around 9:30 p.m. on Saturday, September 25th, 2010, 45-year-old Rudy Alfred Fritz and his 12-year-old daughter, Kelley, were traveling down Highway 76 near Bonsall in his 1956 Volkswagen Beetle when he suddenly lost control of the vehicle and collided head-on with a Buick Regal. They were ejected from the vehicle on impact, and, unfortunately, Kelley did not survive the accident. Neither father nor daughter was wearing a seatbelt, as the Beetle was not originally equipped with them; vehicles manufactured prior to the legislation of seat belt laws are not legally required to have them. However studies have shown a strong correlation between seat-belt use and the prevention of fatalities and injuries during accidents. An estimated 12,713 lives were saved by seat belts in 2009. Moreover, more than 72,000 fatalities were prevented by seat belts between the years of 2005 and 2009, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

"In California, 574 of the 1,963 vehicle occupants killed in motor vehicle collisions in 2008 were not wearing any safety devices, which the California Highway Patrol defines as seat belts, helmets, and any other safety equipment," says Jim Ballidis, a California personal injury lawyer. The first seat belt law was enacted in 1984 in New York. At present, every state except for New Hampshire has one. Seat belt laws fall into two categories: primary and secondary. In states where primary laws are in effect, law enforcement officials may stop a vehicle and issue a citation when either a driver or a passenger is not wearing a seat belt. An officer may only issue a citation for not wearing a seat belt after the vehicle has been pulled over for another violation in states with secondary laws. 31 states, including California, have primary laws, and 18 states have secondary laws, explains a California personal injury lawyer. Seat belt laws have proven more effective in states with primary laws than in those with secondary laws, according to NHTSA.

The state where the most people surveyed claimed to always wear a seat belt was Oregon (94%), followed by California (93.2%), and Washington State (92%). North Dakota was the state in which the fewest amount of people said that they always wear seat belts. As seat-belt use has increased, the number of vehicle occupant fatalities has decreased, according to the National Occupant Protection Use Survey (NOPUS). The recent CDC study found a similar correlation: between the years of 2001 and 2009, the injury rate among motor vehicle occupants decreased by 16%, while between 2002 and 2008, the number of people using seat belts rose from 81% to 85%.The CDC reports that wearing a seat belt can lower the risk of sustaining fatal injuries during a crash by about 45%. When one considers that motor vehicle accidents are the leading cause of fatalities for people between the ages of 5-34, clicking that belt before the starting the car should become automatic
