Seat Belt Usage is Up in Illinois

A statewide survey shows that seat-belt use is up over 15 percent since 2003, and over 75 percent of people said they wore seat-belts when traveling in cars. The increase in seat-belt usage would hopefully lead to less serious injuries resulting from car accidents. The Department of Transportation also says that the number of fatal accidents has fallen over 10 percent in recent years and that the number of car accident deaths in Illinois are as low as it has been in 80 years.
