Meharry Medical College, largest Historically Black College devoted to education of minority health professionals, and leading insurer State Farm joined forces in 2002 to reduce deaths/injuries among minority groups, which are disproportionately higher than those of the general population. The Meharry-State Farm Alliance recognizes legislators for their effort to enact primary seat belt laws, known to improve usage of seat belts by approximately 10 percent once passed. Changing from “secondary” to “primary” enforcement means officers may now ticket motorists simply for not wearing their seat belts; whereas previously motorists were ticketed secondary to another driving violation.
