Click It Or Ticket Crackdown 20 May 13

A statewide “Click it or Ticket” campaign gets underway today (MON) with extra law enforcement patrols hitting Minnesota’s roadways. The seatbelt enforcement campaign runs through June 2nd. Nearly 400 Minnesota law enforcement agencies will be increasing patrols to encourage motorists to buckle up. It’s a nationwide crackdown as well. Unbelted motorists continue to represent a significant amount of Minnesota’s traffic fatalities, especially in Greater Minnesota. In the last three years on Minnesota roads a total of 852 motorists died in car crashes, of which 361 of them, or 42%, were not buckled up.
