We started DO IT IN THE BACK SEAT – BUCKLE UP after learning about a student who died when she was ejected from the back seat of the vehicle she was riding in.
Why did this have to happen when the BELTED front seat passenger SURVIVED?
We were shocked to find out that Florida ranks second in the number of unrestrained passenger deaths and yet still doesn’t require everyone to use a seatbelt in the back seat.
DO IT IN THE BACK SEAT’s mission is twofold. We want you to know the importance of wearing a seatbelt in the back seat and that the lives of everyone in the car are at risk if you don’t.
We also need your help to amend the current Florida law to require seatbelt use for everyone – including those in the back seat. Twenty-eight states have already done it and countless lives have already been saved.
Finally, we know our name is controversial and that’s no accident. We’ll do whatever it takes to get the attention of the 18-25 year old who are the least likely to wear a seatbelt in the back seat.
This a grass roots movement that needs YOUR help.
