Thank you for allowing the primary enforcement seat belt bill to pass last week. This one action will prevent many deaths and costly injuries thoughout South Carolina.

Your state has now become 22nd in the nation - and the only state this year -
to adopt this legislation. Advocates for Highway and Auto Safety (Advocates), a coalition of insurers, public health and safety groups, has supported efforts throughout the many years this important proposal has been before the legislature. We are very pleased to see it enacted into law.

Countless South Carolinians will owe their lives to you and the decision you made to elevate the enforcement authority of this lifesaving law.

Sincerely,

Judith Lee Stone
President
