    There actually are three, and the last two directly affect your body and brain, not your vehicle, often with deadly consequences.

    Capt. Ronnie Hampton, troop commander of the Oklahoma Highway Patrol Troop F, based in Ardmore, wanted people to realize what can happen in a crash if they don’t wear their seatbelts, so he turned to mass communication students at East Central University for some assistance.
