Many thanks are extended to the Locust Township Police Department, who in conjunction with the North Central Highway Safety Network, set up a seat belt survey for vehicles coming on and off Southern Columbia's campus as a kickoff to Teen Driver Safety Week. Locust Township officers and officials from the Safety Network devoted a day on campus checking to see if drivers and their passengers were "buckled up." The seat belt check was deployed to raise awareness of the fact that wearing seat belts can be a life or death decision. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, although safety belts are proven to save lives, more than half of the people who die in passenger vehicle crashes in the U.S. each year are unbelted.
