Failure To Wear Seatbelts Can Be Deadly

Seatbelt Skeleton As Charlotte, North Carolina car accident attorneys, we want to remind you that failure to wear a seatbelt is not only a traffic violation in the State of North Carolina, but can result in serious injury or death.

South Carolina Highway Patrol reports that four people were killed in a car accident last night when their Saturn went through a red light and was hit by a Volkswagen. Two of the four Saturn passengers were ejected from the vehicle. None of the Saturn passengers was wearing a seatbelt.

In a recent North Carolina car accident, another four people were killed when they failed to wear their seatbelts. In the one car collision in Wake County, the driver overcorrected after veering off the right shoulder, resulting in the car entereing the left shoulder where it overturned and hit a tree. North Carolina State Highway Patrol reported that the driver and his 3 passengers were all ejected from the vehicle.

Ironically, in spite of these recent deaths attributable to the failure to wear seatbelts, the North Carolina Department of Transportation recently released a report finding that seatbelt use actually rose to 89.7 percent in North Carolina in 2009, and that North Carolina ranks above the national rate of 83%.

North Carolina law and South Carolina law require all occupants of a motor vehicle to wear seatbelts.
