ARCHIVED PRESS RELEASE: Published 5-14-2013

In 2011, 10,135 passenger vehicle occupants died in motor vehicle crashes nationwide between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m. Nearly two-thirds (62%) of those who died were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crashes, compared to less than half (43%) of the passenger vehicle occupants during daytime hours.

In Oklahoma, 286 people died in unbelted crashes in 2011.  That's over 55% of the 515 people who died in vehicle crashes on Oklahoma roadways.

Night-time drivers and passengers continue to be among those least likely to wear seat belts.  Consequently, they are also among those most likely to die in motor vehicle crashes.
