Safe Driver Week set for July

Each year, the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance spearheads Operation Safe Driver Week.

A team of researchers studied liver injuries suffered by car accident victims between 2010 and 2015, and they found that seat belt use greatly increased the chances of surviving such an injury.
