New Emphasis to be Placed on Seatbelt Usage
Posted: 4-Feb-2002 7:44PM CST

A recent spate of fatal road crashes in Eastern Kentucky has caused the KYTC to put a greater emphasis on seat belt usage. During an eight day period in January five people were killed in five separate accident. None of the five were wearing seatbelts. Those wearing seatbelts in the accidents survived.
