“The Reckless Streak” is a very good article about teen driving and the importance of wearing seat belts. They say that 60 percent of people will survive a near fatal accident when they are wearing a seat belt. When I ride in a car, I usually wear a seat belt. A couple of times I have been made fun of, but I don’t care. I had an uncle who died because he wasn’t wearing a seat belt, and his kids (who are my age) wear theirs all the time now too.
