A new car safety strategy that involves using seatbelts is gaining traction across the country.
The idea is gaining momentum because of an increasing number of fatal crashes involving drivers not using seat belts.
The California Department of Motor Vehicles announced last week that it would be adding seatbelt-only lanes on Interstate 880 between San Diego and San Jose, to provide better visibility for emergency vehicles.
That will give police the opportunity to see if anyone is wearing a seat belt, and potentially prevent other drivers from crashing into other cars.
I have to be careful.
The best safety is knowing the road ahead, said Bill Pate, executive director of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The idea for a seat-belt-free highway was proposed last year by highway engineer and author Kevin Kelly, a former traffic safety director for the California Highway Patrol.”
The goal is to have enough visibility for police to see what’s going on, and that’s where the seats come in.”
The idea for a seat-belt-free highway was proposed last year by highway engineer and author Kevin Kelly, a former traffic safety director for the California Highway Patrol.
He said the current system was not safe enough and it was time to rethink how we are all going to drive.
Kelly, who also worked on the redesign of the Interstate 495 in Arizona, said seatbelted vehicles are more expensive than non-seat-belted cars.
There are a lot of studies on seat belts that don’t make it clear to the driver what is required, he said, and this idea will make that clearer.
He has been talking to police departments across the U.S. about the issue.
In San Diego, which has one of the nation’s busiest highways, city officials say that the city needs to increase its vehicle count.
We are starting to see an increase in crashes, city spokesman Joe Castro said.
The city is adding two lanes of speed limit on I-880 and is also planning a study on the effect of seatbelt use.
“If the studies are accurate, it is going to increase our accident rate,” Castro said, adding that there are now about 6,000 people who have been killed in car crashes on the highway.
He said that although some studies have shown a link between seatbelting and an increased risk of fatal collisions, more studies need to be done to definitively prove this.
It is hard to tell if it will help or hurt the overall accident rate, Castro said in an interview.
The American Automobile Association says it will continue to work with city governments to find out if seat belts will help increase safety.
California is the only state in the country that does not require seat belts on all vehicles.
The California Highway Transportation Agency is also working on a study that will look at whether the use of seat belts could increase the number of people who are wearing seat belts, and if it could reduce fatal crashes.
But there is no guarantee that the seat belt will increase the safety of the drivers in the car, said David Stearns, a transportation researcher at the University of Texas at Austin.
People have gotten into accidents because they have not worn a seat, and they have a tendency to go through the motions, he told ABC News.
Stearns said seat belts can also make it harder for police officers to stop drivers who are distracted by texting or video games.
He called that the primary concern for many people who ride their cell phones.
A study from the Institute of Transportation Engineers, which studies how seat belts affect traffic safety, says that while the use rate for seat belts has decreased for many states, there is still a need for more research.
Some studies have found that wearing a safety belt reduces a driver’s chance of being injured in a collision by more than 50 percent, but those studies do not look at crash data that is collected on the road.
