Christy Yokley of Oklahoma Highway Safety brought a car rollover simulator to the Ag Safety Day at the Woods County Fairgrounds to demonstrate to the more than 150 county fourth graders attending the importance of wearing a seatbelt. Here, a dummy is seatbelted into the simulator, and as it rolls, the dummy's hands fly out the open window but the dummy itself remains safely belted to its car seat.
