Someone Needs You. Buckle Up.

Over the years, the South Dakota Office of Highway Safety has worked to prevent crash fatalities and help South Dakotans make buckling up a habit.

Watch our videos to see how this message has spread throughout the years. These videos may make you laugh, gasp or even cry. But at the end of the day, we hope they make you think about your safety and the safety of those in your vehicle.

Please, buckle up on every trip, every time – and make sure your passengers do, too. Because someone needs you.
