Seat belts reduce the risk of death by 45% for drivers and front-seat passenders involved in crashes. Louisiana has a primary seat belt law that allows enforcement officers to stop and ticket a driver if they observe a safety belt violation. Despite achieving an all-time high in seat belt usage rate of 87.8%, there’s more work to do to achieve 100%. In addition to conducting overtime seat belt enforcement, the SHSP leverages on education and media efforts that highlight the importance of seat belt use and child passenger safety.
