Safety Belt Rally flyer
Shared by: fnv10662
Safety belts save lives . . . You’re invited to join the rally for safety belt use in Missouri. Sixty-eight percent of the people who die in Missouri traffic crashes are not wearing a safety belt. Missouri’s safety belt use rate dropped in 2006, the rst decline since 1998. Just 75 percent of Missourians are buckling up as compared to 77 percent in 2005. That’s why the Primary Safety Belt Partners, a task force formed under the Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety, is inviting you to a regional rally to discuss safety belt use in Missouri. Who: Those who want to learn more about safety belt use in Missouri. What: Will learn more about the importance of safety belt use and the consequences of not wearing safety belts. When: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. - Oct. 20, 2006 Where: Zephyr Room, Union Station, 300 W. Pershing Rd., Kansas City, Mo.
