The Department for Transport THINK! campaign has also been active in promoting seat belt wearing. The THINK! website states:
• In a crash someone not wearing a seat belt is more likely to die than someone using one. In 2007, of the 1,432 car occupants killed, research indicates that some 34% were not wearing a seat belt.
• While few people admit to regularly travelling without a seat belt, research shows that 24% of people admit they sometimes don’t wear a seat belt when travelling in the back, and 10% in the front. There is also evidence that people are less likely to use seat belts on short or familiar journeys or at low speeds. This puts them at serious risk of injury in a crash. • You are twice as likely to die in a crash if you don’t wear a seat belt.
• Nearly 300 lives would almost certainly have been saved in 2007 if all car occupants had been wearing a belt. Roughly, that’s one life a day
