‘Click it or Ticket’ campaign under way
Thursday, May 24, 2012
Through June 3, the Jefferson City Police Department will join with law enforcement around the state for an aggressive national “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to crack down on Missouri's safety belt law violators and to reduce highway fatalities.
Seven out of 10 people killed in Missouri traffic crashes are unbuckled, authorities say.
Missouri's seat belt use also has remained relatively unchanged in the last six years. At 76 percent, it is well below the national average of 85 percent.
Among those least likely to buckle up are teens and pickup truck drivers who only buckle up 66 and 61 percent of the time, respectively.
