Seat belts are the single most effective traffic safety device for preventing death and injury, yet historically, Wyoming has one of the lowest seat belt compliance rates in the country. Let’s buckle up for life, Wyoming!
Thousands of motorists will take to the roads this Memorial Day weekend, and law enforcement will be cracking down on those who don’t buckle up.
Since Wyoming only has secondary seat belt laws, many highway passengers are not using their seat belts properly.
Out of the total highway deaths thus far, many of these could have been prevented if the passengers used their seat belts properly.
A crash near Laramie, resulted in the death of the unrestrained passenger of the car. This is the first fatal highway crash of 2016 for Wyoming.
