Second Chance
You weren't wearing your seat belt. So what? You're a safe driver. You'll be ok…right? Wrong! It's time to face the facts: In 2015, there were 9,874 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. Why did you just get that ticket? Because the time to buckle up is before you've been ejected from your vehicle. In real life you don’t get a second chance. That's why cops give tickets.

Dunk Driving
Look familiar? It's that commercial you remember, with cops busting drunk drivers and alcohol pouring out of their vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has gone into the vault and pulled out a classic. It's a time-honored spot, with a timeless message - If you drive drunk, cops will find you. You may think that you're a great driver or that you can smooth talk your way out it. But you're in for a surprise, because there's no way you can hide it. Cops all across the country are taking drunk drivers off the road by stepping up enforcement. Each year on average, more than 10,000 people die on our roadways due to drunk driving. That's why if you drive drunk you will be caught and you will be arrested. So stop kidding yourself. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.
