Police and the Department of Transportation want everyone to make it home safely and they say the best way to do that is to buckle up, even if you're in the back seat. 

The Department of Transportation set up a demonstration to show how dangerous it is to ride in a car without using your seat belt. They say every passenger needs to buckle up.

ABC2's Don Harrison visited the crash demonstration in Baltimore County Tuesday and spoke to police as well as a mother who lost her son because he wasn't wearing a seat belt in the back seat.
