Why Wearing Your Seatbelt Is So Important (https://goo.gl/L67R8V)

You know that wearing your seatbelt while you're in the car is important for your safety, but you may be surprised to hear that some individuals still choose not to wear their seatbelt, which can be dangerous.

According to statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, young adults ages 18-24 are less likely to wear their seatbelt as opposed to any other age group, and men are more likely than women to not wear their seatbelt. These are some surprising statistics considering the benefits that accompany seatbelt use.

Additional statistics from the CDC revealed that seat belt use helps to reduce serious crash-related injuries by about half, and seat belts helped to save almost 14,000 lives in 2015. If you see a passenger in your vehicle not wearing a seatbelt, remind them to buckle up to protect their safety! You never know if you could be involved in an accident, so it's important to always stay safe while traveling.

Tire Safety Tips That You Need To Know (https://goo.gl/4Cq9qT)

While making an effort to keep the roads safe is important, it's equally as important to maintain your car. Today we're going to talk about the importance of tire safety.

According to the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration, 733 motor vehicle fatalities occurred in 2016 that involved a tire malfunction, which is very alarming. The NHTSA also stated that approximately 19,000 individuals were injured in traffic accidents in 2015 that involved tire issues.

To keep your tires safe, make sure that you have them inspected annually to check for any potential issues, and always make sure that you properly inflate your tires. Waiting until the low tire pressure light comes on in your car is a bad idea, so check them at least monthly. Since properly inflated tires can also help you save on gas money, it's worth it to keep your tires in good shape!

Governor of Georgia Announces $100 Million For Transit Over The Period Of 10 Years (https://goo.gl/13U4hN)

Governor Nathan Deal has just announced that the state will borrow up to $100 million dollars for mass transit projects, which could mean that we may see some improvements on the roadways in Atlanta, as well as in metro Atlanta.

The money will be seen in Governor Deal's budget for 2019 in the form of a transit bond, but it is not yet known how this money will be used to improve our roadways. Here is a direct statement from the Governor:

"This investment will go a long way in reforming and addressing our transit system needs. Pending passage of a transportation bill I can sign, this funding will go into effect."

The House Bill 930 and Senate Bill 386 will allow for 13 metro counties to impose a transit sales tax of up to one percent, and it would also allow for the creation of a board to oversee the construction and funding.

What do you think about this announcement from Governor Deal? Do you think that our roadways will see a significant improvement? Let us know what you think in the comments section!
