One Arm Point Basketball Tournament Urges Drivers to Belt Up

Posted on: Tuesday, 20 June 2017 at 12:00:00 AM

The larger than life "Belt Up" banner was erected on the airport fence by Peninsular Police who knew that all traffic had to drive past it to get to their destination.

Wearing a seat belt is one of easiest ways to protect drivers and passengers in a vehicle. You are 10 times more likely to be killed in a road crash if you’re not wearing a seatbelt in a car (https://www.rsc.wa.gov.au/Education-Programs/Safety-Topics/Seat-belts).
