Before you watch this powerful video  (which garnered 9 million hits!) consider this:

Life is choices. Along with the freedom to choose our actions comes the responsibility of living with the consequences.  Take seatbelts.  You’ve seen the sign “Buckle Up.  It’s the Law.”  It’s more than a law.  It’s one of the best preventative measures we can take to protect our health.  In a Progressive Insurance survey,  52% of accidents occurred within 5 miles of home.  So it doesn’t matter if it’s a quick trip to the store or  long distance travel. One accident without a seatbelt can lead to life in a wheel chair or chronic disability, or even death.  Make the choice to buckle up.  It’s an investment in your wellness.

This powerful commercial garnered over 9 million hits on YouTube!  It’s titled Embrace Life, and was produced for the Suffex Road Safety Campaign in the UK.
