Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for American teenagers. In fact, teens have the highest fatality rate in motor vehicle crashes than any other age group. They also have the lowest safety belt use rates of all drivers. This rate is even lower when there are multiple teens in the vehicle. Safe Kids Florida Suncoast, led by All Children’s Hospital and several community partners, is leading an effort to increase safety belt use by our teenage drivers and passenger. Watch Bayside Saturday July 20th for more on the Battle of the Belts.
