Georgia Safety Facts

February 2009

Georgia’s overall seat belt use rate has remained consistently above the national average; however, its pickup truck seat belt use is much lower.

Georgia’s primary seat belt law provides an exemption for pickup trucks. NHTSA estimates that if Georgia amended its primary seat belt law to include pickup trucks, its pickup truck seat belt use rate could increase by approximately 10 percentage points.

In 2000, crashes cost Georgia

$7.9 billion –

About $959 for each resident

  • With a comprehensive primary seat belt law, each year Georgia would save about:
          • 30 lives
          • 454 serious injuries
          • $104 million in costs
  • (Based on a 10.3 percentage point increase from the 2008 GA pickup truck seat belt use rate.)

SAFETEA-LU provides State incentives for the enactment and enforcement of primary seat belt laws. If Georgia passes a comprehensive primary law including pickup trucks, the state could be eligible to receive about:

$ 20.7 Million
