here are some intresting statistics that i found on the U.S. department of transportation website. (http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/people/injury/airbags/buckleplan/buasbteens03/index.htm)
Safety belts saved more than 12,000 American lives in 2001. Yet, during that same year, nearly two-thirds (60 percent) of passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes were unrestrained.
Safety belt usage saves society an estimated $50 billion annually in medical care, lost productivity, and other injury-related costs.
Conversely, safety belt nonuse results in significant economic costs to society. The needless deaths and injuries from safety belt nonuse account for an estimated $26 billion in economic costs to society annually. The cost goes beyond the lost lives of unbuckled drivers and passengers: We all pay - in higher taxes and higher health care and insurance costs.
