~Safety first for holiday travelers including children~
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – With the holidays approaching and plans for visiting family and friends in full swing, it’s a good time to remind everyone of the importance of using your seat belt while riding in a vehicle, including making sure children are properly secured in a car seat or booster seat. A recent seat belt survey by the Florida Department of Transportation shows that approximately ninety percent of drivers in Florida are using their seat belts. While the statistics are encouraging, unfortunately ten percent of Florida motorists are still not buckling up.
