Today, tens of thousands of people in Illinois and Missouri will take to the road to enjoy the holiday weekend. Nationally, travel analysts predict that 30 million will be on American highways to various vacation spots. With all the extra traffic on the road, the chance of accidents also increases.
With that, drivers must be extra vigilant in order to avoid accidents. However, they can take a simple step to protect themselves in the event of a car crash. Wearing seatbelts is arguably the easiest form of protection that will help people walk away from an accident.
