You Wouldn’t Ride the Zipper Unrestrained

Views

Every year millions of people get on carnival rides.

The Zipper is one of the most popular ever, with an estimated 1000 people per day riding it during the summer time.

Think about this: Would you ride the Zipper unrestrained?

Being in a vehicle during a rollover has been likened to “a brick tumbling around in a dryer.”

Well how about this perspective: Riding the Zipper without restraints is no different from being in a rollover without a seat belt. As of today, there have been 60 crash-related fatalities in Wyoming, as compared to 27 by this time last year, according to http://www.whp.dot.state.wy.us/home.html (Wyoming Highway Patrol).

That’s over two times as many people dead due to crashes.

In 2018, a total of 111 people died in automobile crashes in Wyoming, which was down significantly from years prior. Between the years 2012 and 2016, 67,000 lives were saved by seat belts nationally.”

During the month of May, increased Law Enforcement Visibility will be in force and on the lookout for drunk and impaired drivers.

Injury Prevention Resources is dedicated to educating communities regarding the importance of seat belts and roadway safety. 

Please don’t become a statistic. Buckle up, drive sober.
