Law enforcement officers across the Sunflower State want you to buckle up.
The 2012 national Click It Or Ticket enforcement campaign is underway as local police and the Kansas Highway Patrol will be enforcing seat belt use and cracking down on unrestrained drivers and passengers. This year's effort includes the upcoming Memorial Day weekend and runs through June 3rd.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, of the more than 22 thousand people killed in vehicle crashes in 2010, 51-percent were not wearing their seatbelts at the time.
Locally, Salina Police Officers, Saline County Sheriff Deputies, and Kansas State Troopers are all participating in the effort.
