Wyoming Does Not Buckle Up
Laramie, Wy – A survey of Wyoming drivers finds that only about 60 percent of people from the state wear seat belts. The Department of Transportation did a survey of vehicles and found that those with out- of-state license plates wore seat belts much more often. WyDOT's Matt Carlson says that's especially disturbing because of the number of people that die in crashes simply because they weren't buckled up.
The survey also found that Wyoming men were less likely to wear seatbelts than women and people in pick up trucks wear seat belts less than people in other types of vehicles.
