Make wearing a seatbelt in the backseat of a car mandatory

Currently in both the state of Tennessee and Georgia, there is no law that requires adults to be buckled up in the back seat of a vehicle.

We all know that seat belts save thousands of lives each year, so why do we not require everyone to do so?

Studies have shown that passengers are THREE times more likely to die in a crash if they are unbuckled.

Unbuckled rear-seat occupants can injure buckled front-seat occupants, as well as themselves, when they are thrown around and out of the vehicle during a crash.

Passengers in the front row, and chidren under 17 years old are required to be buckled. However, it is only "recommended" for adults to wear seat belts in the back seat of a vehicle.

Warren & Griffin, P.C. ask: "Why make it optional for someone to buckle up when it can potenitally save not only their own life, but the lives of those around them?"

Tennessee and Georgia are in the minority of only 20 states which have not enforced seat belt laws for every passenger.

Warren & Griffin, P.C. would like your support in petitioning our State government to require that ALL passengers, regardless of age, be required to wear a seatbelt.

Seatbelts Save Lives. Why NOT Buckle Up?
