No matter the time of year, buckling up anytime you are in a vehicle is essential for your health and safety. However, this is particularly true on Thanksgiving, which is sadly one of the most dangerous driving days of the year. According to the Virginia DMV, there were over 22,400 passengers killed in traffic accidents in the United States, and nearly half were killed because they were not wearing a seat belt. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, also known as the NHTSA, determined seat belts were the reason why almost 14,000 people’s lives were saved.
Various, harrowing statistics display the frightening truth about Thanksgiving accidents. This information states men are more likely than women to not wear their seatbelt and suffer a fatality. If you are involved in a vehicular accident and you are not wearing a seatbelt, the odds are against you.
At Kalfus & Nachman, we want to ensure you and your loved ones are kept safe throughout this holiday season. This is only possible by ensuring you can make it to next year’s Thanksgiving as safely as possible, and this starts with wearing your seatbelt. Imagine those whose lives were saved due to seatbelt use--they have something extra special to be thankful for this Thanksgiving season.
