The Ohio State Highway Patrol urges you to put on your seatbelt this holiday season and for the next year. In a release, they say that from 2013-2015 over 1,150 people were killed in crashes who were not wearing seatbelts. According to Ohio’s 2015 Observational Seatbelt Survey, 83.9% of drivers say they wear their seatbelt. This is a decrease from 85% in 2014. The law remains a secondary violation but troopers will continue to have a zero-tolerance enforcement when drivers are found without their seatbelts on.
Below is a link to the statistical analysis.
