Sheryl Crow Encourages Missouri Teens to Buckle Up

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Sheryl Crow wants Missouri teens to Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.

A public service announcement featuring the nine-time Grammy Award-winning singer/songwriter and Missouri native talks about some of her best memories as a teenager, including basketball games, prom and hanging out with friends. Crow advises teens "Don't let your fun be cut short. Safety belts save lives. Make them a habit."

You can hear the spot, which has been sent to radio stations across Missouri, at http://www.savemoyouth.com/, as well as on YouTube at www.youtube.com/modotvideo.

Teens are an important audience for seat belt messages in Missouri. Recent surveys show only 61 percent of Missouri teenagers wear seat belts, a dramatic difference from Missouri's statewide seat belt usage rate of 77 percent and the national average of 82 percent.  In 2006, 153 teen vehicle occupants were killed.  Of those killed, 73 percent were not wearing their seat belt.
