It is well known fact that wearing a seat belt can saves lives if you are involved in an auto accident.  The difference of wearing a seat belt is between having no injuries or very minor injuries such as neck and back strains/sprains, to suffering serious, permanent, or life changing injuries and in the worst case scenario, death.  I insist that all passengers in the vehicle that I am driving put on their seat belts before a drive and we all should practice this.

In today's Sunday Seattle Times newspaper, I noticed an ad from the Community Traffic Safety Task Force and the Washington Traffic Safety Commission announcing that law enforcement agencies in this area will be conducting nighttime seat belt patrols from November 17 and December 7, 2008. 

This is because the traffic death rate is four times higher at night and seat belt use is lower at night.  Other factors of nighttime traffic car or truck accident related deaths are alcohol and drug impaired driving (DUI), speeding, inattention, reckless driving, and drowsy driving.
