MN Click It Or Ticket Results 04 Jun 13

The Minnesota State Patrol issued a total of 1,783 seat belt citations and 857 warnings as part of the 2-week long Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign that wrapped up on Sunday. In southern Minnesota, state troopers wrote a total of 214 citations and 168 warnings for no seat belt use or improper seat belt use. In the state of Minnesota, all drivers and passengers in all seating positions, including in the back seat, are required to be buckled up or seated in the correct child restraint. Seat belts must be worn correctly as well, and officers will stop and ticket unbelted drivers or passengers. The odds are six times greater for injury if a motorist is not buckled up in a crash, and in rollover crashes unbelted motorists are usually ejected from the vehicle.
