For decades, CDOT has been reminding folks to buckle up, yet seat belt compliance remains flat. While “Click It or Ticket” will always be the recognizable mainstay of the campaign, we wanted to find a new angle that would refresh the message for our audience. Brace yourself for this one: an unbuckled passenger increases your risk of being hurt or killed by 40%. If a ticket or your own personal injury doesn’t concern you, perhaps endangering those around you will.

The Children's Safety Network has released a new infographic focusing on the disparities in child passenger deaths. Motor vehicle crashes are a leading cause of death among children, and from 2010 through 2014, an average of 343 child passengers died per year. American Indian/Alaska Native child passengers die at a higher rate than any other racial/ethnic group. The good news is that these deaths are preventable. The CSN infographic also goes into prevention strategies.
