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:
*746 people were killed on Kentucky’s roadways in 2012
*Of those 746 killed, 592 were motor vehicle fatalities.
*62.5 percent of those motor vehicle fatalities 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.
