The state Transportation department says one group of motorists struggles with clicking it more than the others: motorists in pick-up trucks. MoDOT’s message is simple: if you don’t buckle up, you are more likely to die. But, spokesman Bill Whitfield says just 60 percent of motorists in pick-ups buckle up versus the 80 percent of motorists in cars, suvs and vans. Whitfield adds that 85 percent of all people who died in pick-up truck crashes last year were not wearing a seatbelt. He says in an effort to encourage more motorists to buckle up, particularly motorists in pick-ups, the department is launching an aggressive enforcement initative: Buckle Up in Your Truck. The initiative begins May 6th.
