For anyone who complains about getting a ticket for not buckling up when driving or riding in a motor vehicle, here’s a crash course in reality:
• 721 people were killed on Kentucky’s roadways in 2011.
• 58 percent of those killed were not wearing a seat belt.
• When worn correctly, seat belts are proven to reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat occupants by 45 percent and by 60 percent in pickup trucks, SUVs and minivans.
