It’s a year-round effort, but starting Monday and running through June 5th, the Missouri Department of Transportation and nearly 200 law enforcement agencies are teaming up to get people to buckle up. During the two-week “Click-It or Ticket” campaign, those stopped for other driving offenses will get tickets if they are not buckled up. Officials say there will be no warnings and no exceptions. MODOT’s Bill Whitfield says it’s an effort to save lives and reduce injuries, citing studies that indicate wearing seat belts makes drivers and passengers safer. In fact, Whitfield cites a report that says you have a one in 37 chance of dying in an accident if not buckled up. Your odds go to one in 1,283 if you do buckle your seat belt.
