Tips for pedestrian safety

Many people walk to and from places every day. No one expects to be involved in a traffic accident. However, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, every seven minutes a pedestrian is injured. Additionally, every two hours a pedestrian is killed.

Can wearing a seat belt in rear seats reduce injuries?

Connecticut fans of 60 Minutes were likely saddened by the recent news that Bob Simon from the show was killed in a car accident while riding in the back seat of a vehicle. Simon was reportedly not wearing a seat belt. According to a representative with the Connecticut Injury Prevention Center at Hartford Hospital, in car accidents, those who are not wearing a seat belt, particularly those seated in the back or rear seats, tend to become projectiles during a collision, and cause serious injuries not only to themselves but also the belted occupants in the vehicle.
