More Americans are 86% as ever, after the nation above an all-time hit of the traffic safety agency buckling record partly by a significant increase in the South.

For the dramatic decline in deaths of US over the last decade was the trend to increased seat belt use credited.

"When it comes to ensure that road, one of the most effective ways to protect and your family is a seat belt use", said Ray LaHood Secretary of the U.S. Department of transportation, adding that push the numbers will go even higher, during the upcoming holiday season.

While seat belt use is mandatory in many parts of the industrialized world decades since, the United States had a hodgepodge of laws at best and can issue yet in some States, police use tickets for the failure of the primary safety device, if a driver commits a different offense. But a growing number of States the violation a primary offense, and national efforts to motorists turned to the fasten joined.

Every State but New Hampshire requires now adult motorists to buckle this traditionally independent State in New England with the use for those under 18 thirty-two States and the District of Columbia have now primary belt laws in force.

That has a significant level of success, seat belt use a jump of only 58% only in 1994, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration had.

Consumption rises and falls, NHTSA mentioned, the US average dipped to 84% in the last year down from 85% in 2010. Michigan reached a peak of 98% in 2009, but the low beam on just over 94% in the previous year.

In the latest study, Pennsylvania saw a decrease of 2.2%, less than 84%.

There are regional differences, and has in the South tend to be relatively low safety belt use. But that rose to 85% this year according to NHTSA, a 5 percentage points by 80% in 2011. Efforts seem in motorists driving to the strap on a significant role played.

The State with the lowest utilization is Massachusetts, 73.2% this year. Washington State, leads to the other side of the nation at 97.5%.

The Government Agency estimates that a one percent increase in the seat belt use saves annually 220 lives. NHTSA credits the simple device with more than 72,000 save between 2005 and 2009 - or roughly the equivalent of two years of road deaths from the current US tempo.

Although preliminary data 2012 shows a very slight increase in deaths in the first half of the year will be the interstate highway system reached the lowest U.S. traffic Toten last year since 1949, even before the founding of the American.

According to estimates of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 32.310 accident killed a decrease of 1.7% in 2011 year compared to the previous year. Marks the seventh consecutive year that the death rate has declined.

Decreased since 2005 of only fatalities by more than 25% - and measured in terms of deaths per mile dangers the figure reached its lowest level since the beginning of records in 1921, according to NHTSA.
