Buckle up: Washington police step up seat belt enforcement patrols Arkansas joining seat belt enforcement plan

North Carolina law requires drivers and passengers to be properly restrained by using a seat belt. "We would rather make the traffic stop than the notification to tell a family that their loved one has died in a crash".

During the campaign, officers will cite motorists and their passengers if they're not wearing a seat belt. In the following years, the state's seat belt usage rate rose and by 2002 the rate was 82 percent. The special operation is created to send a zero-tolerance message across the six states that no matter where drivers and passengers are unbuckled, the result will be a ticket.

An increased police presence will stress the proper use of seat belts and making sure all young passengers are properly restrained inside moving vehicles with auto seats or booster seats. As a result, officers issued 17,792 seat belt citations, 6,363 speeding summonses and made 976 impaired driving arrests.

Manchester United, Liverpool Reportedly Set for New Club World Cup Invitation
FIFA ARE PLANNING a new 24-club summer tournament that will replace the current Club World Cup and Confederations Cup. Backers from Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates are also reported to be involved.

Almost half of the people killed in crashes in 2016 were not wearing seat belts, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The Pennsylvania State Police are joining PennDOT and law enforcement agencies across the country for the national "Click It or Ticket" seat belt enforcement campaign. That is why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign will be nighttime enforcement. In Kansas, 56 percent of 18-to-34-year old occupants killed in crashes were not wearing their seat belts in 2017. If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled anytime or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket, not a warning.

The public is invited to attend a free event for the 2018 Click It or Ticket Kickoff 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 16 at the Herman N. Menapace Health & Education Center, 1141 N. Monroe Drive.
