New York officials say a new survey shows 91 percent of New Yorkers fasten their seat belts showing record compliance with the traffic safety requirement the state first imposed 30 years ago.

The survey, conducted by the University at Albany's Institute for Traffic Safety Management and Research, shows this year's seat belt usage is up slightly from 90.4 percent in 2012 and 90.5 percent in 2011.

I would have thought it would be higher. It doesn't seem worth getting a ticket.

We're moving in the right direction. Maybe in 10 years it might be 98%.

Of course their insurance didn't go down. The insurance companies enjoyed the savings. But since this really affects lives, it's still good.

9% would rather die than do something they were told would be good for them.

Those 9% should invalidate health insurance, if in a wreck.

I still don't understand the other 9% but it looks like the results are pretty consistent over the 3 years. This of course presumes accuracy in the survey.
