    Details:

    On January 25, 2018 at 9:00 a.m., the Battle of the Belts Awards Ceremony will be held at Robinson High School.

    The Battle of the Belts initiative consists of Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office working with Hillsborough County Public Schools and GEICO to increase safety belt use by teenage drivers and passengers. The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office Community Outreach Division sponsored a competition to promote the seat belt awareness campaign in December of 2017 in which 23 Hillsborough County schools participated.

    Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for American teenagers. In fact, teens have the highest fatality rate in motor vehicle crashes than any other age group. They have the lowest safety belt use rates of all drivers. This rate is even lower when there are multiple teens in the vehicle.

    The competition was initiated in an effort to change these statistics and increase safety belt use among teenagers.
