AskPatty’s #Prom Driving Safety Tips: Wear Your Seatbelt!
Insist that everyone wears a seatbelt even if it means a few clothing wrinkles.
Compared with other age groups, teens have the lowest rate of seat belt use, according to CDC.gov. In addition to jewelry or flowers, seatbelts are the perfect formal accessory – a little wrinkle in your dress, tux, or graduation gown is hardly worth not buckling up for. Buckling your seatbelt can save your life and keep you from getting seriously injured.
May and June are peak season for attending Proms and graduation parties, but don't let a fun celebration turn into a tragic teen statistic.
