Click It Or Ticket Gets Underway

ATLANTA (AP) — Law enforcement agencies in Georgia plan to join this year’s national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization.

The efforts cracking down on people who don’t buckle up kicks off Monday and runs through June 3.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration 22,187 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2010, and 51 percent of them were not wearing seat belts at the time of their fatal crashes.

Department numbers show that younger motorists, especially young men, are especially at risk.
