Winter is coming! Buckle up. This is not a game

We all have to face the fact that winter is coming and there are dangers associated with it. What’s the easiest thing you can do to increase your chances of surviving a crash? Buckle up.

In fact, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, drivers and passengers who buckle up are 45 percent less likely to die and 50 percent less likely to be moderately injured in a crash.

What’s holding you back? Buckle up every seat, every trip.

Just a reminder…
