Seatbelts

SeatbeltWhat do you write about seatbelts today? They were around when I started driving (1974), so everyone knows about them. The fine for not wearing one is expensive ($138), but you probably know that too. Road Safety Vision 2010 sets a target wearing rate of 95% by 2010 (currently it varies from 68% to 95% in our patrol area).

Seatbelts, Again.

SeatbeltAs with everything else in our lives, the cost of not wearing a seatbelt is going up again. On April 18th the "bill" will $138 instead of $109. Of course, there will still be the $25 discount for early payment, but $113 is a lot of money to have to part with!

Seatbelts, An Automatic Habit

SeatbeltOne would think that wearing a seatbelt would be an automatic habit for today's drivers and their passengers. The seatbelt law has been in place for many years and the benefits of being properly buckled up have been clearly demonstrated. However, ICBC seatbelt surveys still show that a significant percentage of vehicle occupants don't buckle up, especially on rural roads.
