Take it from a Driver who always wears
his seat belt.
Even a car crash at 15 mph without wearing a seat belt can feel like being hit by a 300 lb. lineman at full speed. In Wisconsin, you can get pulled over for not wearing a seat belt and you will get a ticket. Take it from a Driver who always wears his seat belt, every trip, every time. Click it or ticket, and let’s achieve zero deaths on Wisconsin roadways.
