DELPHOS — Motorists in Delphos are among the least likely to buckle up, according to survey data collected by the Lima-Allen County Safe Community Coalition.
A survey done at the intersection of South Main and Suthoff streets in June 2013 revealed those driving vans were less likely to be belted at 68.4 percent versus cars at 73.3 percent, SUVs at 100 percent, light trucks at 78.6 percent and heavy trucks at 75 percent. Usage by men was lower than women at 72.3 percent compared to 76.3 percent. Those ages 26-64 were belted least at 72.2 percent, followed closely by those ages 15-24 at 79.2 percent and those over 65 at 75 percent.
