The Southlake Mobility Team Encourages Drivers to Buckle Up

Enhancing Southlake’s mobility landscape is just one of the many roles the Southlake Mobility Team plays in the success of building a better transportation system that both pedestrians and commuters can enjoy.

For everyone to benefit and enjoy the community around us, we want to encourage everyone to fasten your seat belts before you hit the road.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, seat belts save more than 13,000 lives every year.

Buckling up helps secure you inside of your vehicle and acts as a defense mechanism against aggressive, impaired and distracted drivers.

Below is a list of seat belt guidelines by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that can help you stay safe.

  1. Place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and away from you neck.
  2. Adjust the lap belt across your hips below your stomach.
  3. Never put the seat belt behind your back or under an arm.
