Governor's Highway Safety Program Targets Teens For Seatbelt Safety

Seatbelts save more than 11-thousand lives each year, according to federal statistics.

That's one reason high schools are making sure their students are buckled up before they leave campus. As part of the Governor's Highway Safety Program, high school officials can check seat belts as students drive off school grounds.

If they're caught unbuckled, the school can swipe their school parking permit.
