ADOT kicks off safety campaign with Arizona Cardinals player Jared Veldheer

By Doug Pacey / ADOT Communications

ADOT launches its “Seat belts. For life.” campaign today. Did you know that of the 895 people that died in traffic crashes in 2015 in Arizona, 258 weren't wearing a seat belt? Buckling up could have saved many of those lives.

We are thrilled to partner with Arizona Cardinals left tackle and team captain Jared Veldheer and thank him for volunteering his time to promote the importance of wearing a seat belt. Football and traffic safety might not appear to have much in common. But consider that the safety gear worn by football players has the same purpose as a seat belt – help the wearer survive a violent collision.

So, please, buckle up!
