EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ - During the Memorial Day holiday, about 10,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide will be out on the roads from May 20 through June 2 to remind drivers and passengers to buckle their seat belts. The annual Click It or Ticket campaign aims at enforcing seat belt use to help keep travelers safe as they drive to their summer destinations.
According to NHTSA, 10,076 people who were killed in passenger vehicle crashes in 2017 weren’t buckled. Fifty-five percent of those fatalities happened at night (6 p.m.–5:59 a.m.). Law enforcement will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt law enforcement during the Click It or Ticket campaign, writing citations day and night.
