Back Seat Safety a Growing Concern for State Patrol
DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Iowa State Patrol estimates that 9-out-of-10 drivers have passengers who have their seat belts buckled incorrectly. “There are so many ways to do it wrong,” said Sgt. Nate Ludwig, Iowa State Patrol. “There is only one way to do it right.” A recent poll of 1,077 Iowans showed that 85% of Iowans always buckle up in the front seat, yet only 36% always buckle up in the back seat.
