Seniors "Buckle Down" For Seat Belt Law

May 14, 2007


New Hampshire seniors say seat belts save lives, and they're buckling down to support a bill that would make every driver buckle up. May is Older Americans Month, and Bob Denz with the New Hampshire AARP says seat belt use is a choice drivers can make for a healthier future for all.

“We're looking not just to save seniors, we're looking to save the seniors' sons and daughters and grandchildren and so forth.”

The New Hampshire Senate will hold a hearing on a mandatory seat belt bill Monday. New Hampshire is the only state without a seat belt law and has the nation's lowest rate of seat belt use. Opponents say that in the "Live Free or Die" state, drivers should have the right to choose whether or not to buckle up.

But Denz believes a seat belt law would be another tool for boosting seat belt use.

“There's not only the law, but also education. They go hand-in-hand. Teach the people and keep reminding them, and the safety courses do that.”
