ALWAYS BUCKLE UP
Buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself and others in a crash. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide in 2011. Yet, many people still aren’t buckling up across the country and here at home.
It only takes two seconds to buckle up. Please, wear your seat belt every time and make sure all passengers are buckled up as well.
ALWAYS DRIVE SOBER
Someone dies every 53 minutes from drunk driving crashes in the United States. As a minor, you should not be drinking or using illegal drugs in the first place, but getting behind the wheel makes it even more deadly.
While impaired driving fatalities are declining in Nevada, there are still far too many people killed or injured on our roadways because someone made the decision to drive impaired.
DO NOT DRIVE under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and don’t get in a vehicle if the driver is impaired in any way. When taking prescription medication, check the label to make sure it’s safe to drive.
FOCUS ON THE ROAD
There are more than 3,500 distraction-related crashes in Nevada every year. A driver can be distracted by the simplest of tasks, both legal and illegal, and lose control of a vehicle. These tasks include using a cell phone or texting (which is illegal in Nevada when behind the wheel), eating or drinking and adjusting music, just to name a few.
However, the top distraction for teen drivers is having passengers under 21 years old.
When you’re driving, make sure you avoid distractions and focus on the road.
