If you’ve been in a car accident in Denver, Co, the first question people typically ask is, “is everyone okay?” followed quickly by, “was everyone wearing their seatbelt?” While we hope the answers to both of those questions are yes, we know sometimes people forget, or don’t prioritize it when driving. We also know there are some stereotypes attached to who actually wears their seat belts.
When accidents happen, people naturally start to point fingers, and those fingers often end up facing the direction of teenagers. Teens are often classified as reckless, distracted, and irresponsible behind the wheel. Check out this infographic to see where our stereotypes lead us astray in how we think about teens’ safety and seat belts.
