The four main goals of the campaign include 1) to inspire more motorists to wear their seat belts; 2) to create a seat belt “conversation starter” engaging the public, media and lawmakers; 3) to utilize controversy generated by the campaign to highlight the importance of wearing a seat belt; and 4) to set the stage for Utah lawmakers to pass a primary seat belt law in 2015.
