PSP PennDOT Focus on Summer Driving Safety With 'Click It or Ticket' Mobilization

To kick off the 2018 "Click It or Ticket" seat belt campaign, the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office is partnering with St. John Health System, law enforcement partners, AAA Oklahoma, and other local groups to highlight the dangers of not wearing a seat belt. The plan is aimed at motor vehicle drivers and passengers who are in violation of state seat belt laws.

Of those vehicle crashes, more than 300 people have died.

According to operation pull over coordinator Sgt. Brent Campbell of the RPD, 2018 marks the 30 year anniversary that seat belt use became mandatory in Indiana.

According to the most recent statistics released, 10,428 unbuckled motorists were killed in 2016 as a result of traffic accidents while an additional 14,668 lives were saved as a result of seat belt use during the same time. The goal of the campaign is to raise New Jersey seat belt usage rate, which now stands at 94.07 percent.

"For whatever reason, there seems to be a disconnect with people feeling they don't need to buckle up when riding as a passenger in rear seats, and this is a concern", he said.

Governor Roy Cooper has proclaimed May as Seat Belt Safety Awareness Month.

In 2017, 42 percent of automobile fatalities in North Carolina were drivers or passengers who were not wearing their seat belt.

More than 150 law enforcement agencies across Kansas will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt enforcement as part of the national campaign that runs from May 21 through June 3, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year. That's why police around the country want you to "Click it or Ticket".

Drivers can expect to see increased state and local law enforcement on the roads, searching for seat belt lawbreakers. The "Buckle Up Pennsylvania, Click it or Ticket" program offers grants to police departments statewide to step up enforcement.
