FLORIDA NEEDS YOUR HELP

A student from our community had become the latest automobile fatality when she was ejected from the back seat returning home from a party.  The driver and front seat passenger survived with only minor injuries.

The difference between life and death was nothing more than a SEATBELT.

FLORIDA ranks second in the nation for the number of unrestrained passenger deaths and still has no requirement for back seat passengers over 18 to wear a seatbelt.

OUR MISSION IS SIMPLE:

We want YOU to know the importance of wearing a seatbelt in the back seat and that when you don’t, you risk not just your own life – but the lives of EVERYONE in the car.

We need YOUR help to amend Florida law to require seatbelt use for everyone – including those in the back seat. Thirty states already have, and lives are being SAVED.

We know you ALREADY wear your seatbelt in the front seat, we’re just asking you to DO IT in the back seat as well.

Do it for yourself. Do it for your FRIENDS. It doesn’t matter if you’re riding in car, taxi, Uber or Lyft – just do it in the back seat and REMIND your friends to join in!

This a grass roots movement that needs YOUR help.
