Lack of Seat Belt Use Leads to Sedgwick Fatalities
Sedgwick County (May 16, 2022) – The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) has reported that Sedgwick County leads the state in traffic accident fatalities. The agency noted that many Kansas car accident fatalities were due to drivers and passengers failing to use seat belts. Many of these deaths could have been avoided through proper seat belt use.
Assistant Bureau Chief of Transportation Safety for the Kansas Department of Transportation Chris Bortz noted, “Buckling up costs you nothing. Not buckling up could cost you everything. Buckle up for every trip, every time.” The Kansas personal injury lawyers at Patterson Legal Group remind you that it only takes a few seconds to buckle your seat belt. It’s a simple action that could save your life. Source: KDOT
