DOVER, Vt. (AP) - The chairman of a group set up to help keep people safer on Vermont’s roads says nearly half of the people killed in crashes in the state aren’t wearing seat belts.

Glen Button, of the Vermont Highway Safety Alliance, asked people at a recent conference what can be done to get the 15 percent of the public that doesn’t wear seatbelts to buckle up.

Since its founding, the organization has grown to include over 40 public and private organizations in enforcement, education, engineering, emergency medical services, and other advocates of safe transportation.

More than 100 people attended the meeting last week at the Mount Snow ski resort.
