Dear Editor,

Dear Editor,

As we approach Thanksgiving, I'm sure many of you have turkey dinners and road trips on your mind.  Please add seatbelts to that list.  They are the best tool you have for keeping you and your family safe on the road.

Last year's Thanksgiving was the deadliest on record.  Seven people died in car wrecks.  Six of those people weren't wearing their seatbelts.
