Consumer Reports: Hannah Montana needs to Buckle Up!

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) -- Buckle up, Hannah Montana!

In a blog item posted Monday, Consumer Reports magazine says 15-year-old superstar Miley Cyrus is seen in her new movie riding without a seat belt in the back seat of a Range Rover. Cryus plays Hannah Montana on television.

The Yonkers-based magazine says her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, also is seen without a seat belt.

The movie is the 3-D Disney concert film "Hannah Montana & Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert," which is based on Miley Cyrus' TV show. It has made more than $50 million in less than two weeks.

Telephone calls and e-mails to Disney and to several of Miley Cyrus' representatives seeking comment were not immediately returned Monday.

The magazine says 65 percent of the 13- to 15-year-olds killed in auto accidents in 2006 were not wearing seat belts.

The Cyruses have a home near Nashville, Tenn.
