Not wearing a seatbelt continues to be a significant contributor to the Queensland road toll.
In 2012, 23 people who weren't wearing seatbelts died as a result of crashes within Queensland.
In an effort to save lives, the Department of Transport and Main Roads runs seatbelt campaigns to show the consequences of not wearing a seatbelt and to remind drivers and passengers to buckle up.
Wearing a seatbelt can improve your chances of surviving a crash by up to 50%.
The Join the Drive to Save Lives campaign that launched in November 2013 included seatbelt messages in the form of a dedicated television commercial and extended video. Visit www.qld.gov.au/jointhedrive to get involved and have your say on seatbelts.
