Seat belts do reduce the risk of death and serious injury when motor vehicle crashes occur. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) seat belts save more than 13,000 lives each year. It is estimated that more than 5,000 lives could be saved every year if every one buckled up.
