Monday, March 19 marks the 12-year anniversary of the death of Megan Miller, who was not wearing a seat belt when she was killed in a crash on U.S. 60 in Owensboro. Her friends and family turned their grief into a campaign to urge teens to buckle up, always. The Buckle Up for Megan Campaign may have saved dozens of lives over the last 12 years by encouraging teens and adults across the region to develop a lifetime habit of buckling up anytime and every time they get into a vehicle. Megan’s parents, Mischelle and Tim Miller, joined by friends and family, are continuing their commitment to he “Buckle Up for Megan” Campaign with an event at Don Moore’s Overflow Cafe from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m Monday at 3232 Villa Point in Owensboro. They have placed a billboard in Owensboro honoring Megan and encouraging motorists to buckle up in her honor. There will be free coffee from Don Moore’s Overflow Cafe, a cook out, giveaways and more. The public is invited to stop by to honor Megan’s legacy and help promote the life-saving importance of seat belt use. Kentucky’s seat belt use percentage is 86.8, below the national average of 90.1 percent. Just over half of those killed in crashes on Kentucky highways are not wearing a set belt. Pushing seat belt use to 100% could save many of those and greatly reduce the number of life-altering injuries in auto crashes.
