Here's a family safety alert for your employees: An alarming number of teenagers die in crashes because they are not buckled up.

New results from the annual teen driving survey conducted by Students Against Destructive Decisions/Students Against Driving Drunk (SADD, Inc.) and Liberty Mutual Group reveal that one in five young drivers (22 percent) never wear a seat belt, and more than two in five (41 percent) only wear a seat belt occasionally.

Visit www.libertymutualinsurance.com for additional survey information and tips from Liberty Mutual and SADD on how parents can communicate safe driving habits with their teenagers.

"Motor vehicle accidents remain the number-one killer of young people in America, and it is alarming to continually see such high incidents of neglect when it comes to wearing a seat belt," said John B. Conners, executive vice president and manager, Personal Insurance, for Liberty Mutual.
