"Click It or Ticket" kicks off again
Motorists who refuse to wear their seat belts – beware. The 2012 national "Click It or Ticket" Memorial Day seat belt enforcement mobilization began Monday, with the aim of saving lives by cracking down on those who don’t buckle up.
Despite a wealth of data showing that seat belts save lives – and also despite implementation of a primary seat belt law – Kentucky’s 82 percent seat belt usage rate lags behind the national rate of 84 percent. Therefore, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) is supporting state and local law enforcement across the country in their efforts to strongly enforce seat belt laws around the clock.
