Click It Or Ticket Results 12 Jun 12

The recent statewide “Click It or Ticket” seatbelt enforcement campaign resulted in more than 12,000 citations being handed out over a 2-week period. The Office of Traffic Safety’s Donna Berger says citations have trended downward every year since the legislature passed the primary seatbelt enforcement law. Officials say of the 878 traffic deaths in the past three years in Minnesota, 43% were not buckled up. Of those unbelted fatalities, 80% were in Greater Minnesota, and nearly half were age 30 or younger.
