Unrestrained Car Accidents in Albuquerque
Seat belt use has been shown to save lives. In 2017, 14,955 lives were saved due to proper passenger restraint in a vehicle. However, many people still choose to travel in vehicles without the use of a seatbelt.
In fact, over 10% of the population does not use a seatbelt when riding in a vehicle. This can result in severe injuries in the event of a crash. Sadly, in serious cases, crashes can result in the death of unrestrained passengers.
