Seat belt laws saving
By DAVID PEARSON
Staff Writer v"' f
About 400 Americans owe their
lives to the mandatory seat belt laws
passed by eight states in 1985,
according to a study of the year's
traffic fatalities conducted by the
UNC Highway Safety Research
According to B. J. Campbell,
director of the center, seat belt use
was less than 20 percent before the
seat belt laws went into effect.
Afterward, belt use went up to 40
to 50 percent in the states with laws.
"If we project our findings based
on just the eight states to the entire
nation, we could expect 2,000 to
2,500 lives to be saved each year,"
Campbell said. "That's with seat belt
use at its current level of 40 to 50
He also said that 30 million
Americans who did not buckle up
have begun to do so since the laws
went into effect. That makes the total
number of belt wearers about 51
million, he added.
Campbell said that the study used

He said Bowles was often impa
tient with the "snail's pace" of official
church aid for the needy.
"He preferred to move quickly and
meet human need where he found
it," said Dickson. "His chief concern
was that he had not done enough."
Bowles defeated former Lt. Gov.
Pat Taylor for the gubernatorial
nomination in 1972 but lost in the
general election to Jim Holshouser,
the first elected republican governor
Bowles headed the N.C. Board of
Conservation and Development,
forerunner of the N.C. Department
of Commerce, during Sanford's
administration and served one term
in the state House and two terms
in the state Senate.

Campbell said that seat belts could

everyone obeyed the laws.
However, he said, "It's unlikely
this country will ever reach 100
percent compliance, but substantial
improvements can be made. Intense
public information and an increased
enforcement commitment are
needed to realize what is potentially
the most successful highway safety
measure in this country's history."
Campbell said people simply do
not understand the risks of not
wearing a seat belt. Traffic death is
by far the greatest cause of death
among college students, Ij&said. "On
this campus, two or three students
are killed every year as regularly as

not wearing seat belts."
