Ontario’s annual seatbelt campaign kicked off yesterday to remind drivers and passengers to buckle up and make sure children are properly secured in the right child car seat.
Wearing a seatbelt is the most effective way to reduce the risk of injury or death in a collision. Since Ontario’s seatbelt law was introduced 35 years ago, it is estimated that seatbelt use has saved over 8,000 lives.
Since 2003, the McGuinty government has expanded the seatbelt laws to encourage more people to buckle up, including:
- Requiring every person in a motor vehicle to wear a seatbelt under the One Person, One Seatbelt Law
- Making it mandatory for anyone transporting children to ensure they are properly secured in an appropriate child car seat or booster seat
- Increasing fines for seatbelt, child seat and booster seat violations.
Ontario’s road safety partners, including police, fire and emergency services, community groups, health care professionals and injury prevention practitioners across the province are participating in the seatbelt campaign. The campaign runs from April 13 until April 23.
Ontario is taking action to address the rising costs of tobacco-related disease on the province’s health care system by expanding services that help smokers quit.
Beginning in Spring 2011, participating Family Health Teams will provide access to over-the-counter nicotine replacement therapy (NRT) such as nicotine patches and gum, combined with counselling, at no cost to the smoker. These services are also already available in many Public Health Units, Community Health Centres, Aboriginal Health Access Centres, pharmacies and hospitals.
Expanding these services to Family Health Teams will give 20,000 more Ontarians the tools to quit smoking over the next two years, and help the province reduce the $1.93 billion in tobacco-related health care costs.
Family Health Teams will work in partnership with the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health to:
- Identify, advise and assist current smokers within Family Health Teams
- Offer NRT treatment and expert smoking cessation counselling
- Follow-up with participants to prevent relapses
- Offer additional counselling and follow-up support through the Smokers’ Helpline and online services
