SAFETY BELT USE UP AMONG TRUCK & BUS DRIVERS

Safety belt use among commercial truck and bus drivers increased in 2010 according to a report released recently by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration.  FMCSA reports that safety belt use increased to 78% in 2010 up from 74% in 2009.  As you know, it is a federal regulation (392.16) to wear a seat belt while operating a CMV; it is also a law in most states that all occupants of any motor vehicle wear a seat belt.  Perhaps more importantly, it could save your life in an accident situation, always wear your seat belt!
