Buckle Up for ‘Click It or Ticket’
During the Memorial Day weekend, 2013 ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign was launched to focus on seat belt use. The U.S. Department of Transportation reminded motorists about the severe risks of driving unbelted, day or night.
Reports from National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that seat belt use at night, where the risk of being involved in a serious crash is greater, continues to be lower than during the day. Law enforcement will focus on both day and night time drivers for seat belt use.
"Law enforcement officers across the country will be out day and night handing out tickets to unbuckled motorists. We hope our 'Click It or Ticket' efforts will encourage more motorists to buckle up and make it a lifelong habit," said NHTSA Administrator David Strickland.

Most drivers have this down. We wear seat belts in self preservation. Staying in the seat keeps us in control of the truck. It's just a bit of cheap insurance!
