New Jersey has a strong front seat belt usage rate, but there is still work to do. "But it's more than that". To meet our goals enforcement must continue along with efforts to educate all motor vehicle occupants about the importance of buckling up on every ride. Buckling up is the law. We see the loss of life.
"Using a seat belt is the simplest way for a driver and his or her passengers to protect themselves when traveling", said Gary Poedubicky, Acting Director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.

"If you know a friend or a family member who does not buckle up when they drive, please ask them to consider changing their habits", implored Sheriff Kent. "Help us spread this life-saving message before one more friend or family member is killed as a result of this senseless inaction".
Poedubicky added that a key focus of this year's campaign is to promote seat belt usage by adults in all seating positions in the vehicle, both front AND rear seats.More news: ABC says "Roseanne" will concentrate on family, not politics
