Seat Belt Safety Campaign Begins 23 May 16

(Learfield News Service)  Wear your seat belt. That’s the message today (Monday) as the latest statewide “Click It or Ticket” campaign gets underway.

Donna Berger with the Office of Traffic Safety says overall, we’re doing ok when it comes to seat belt use. She says the 2015 MN Observational seat belt survey shows over 94% compliance for front seat occupants. That’s good news, but she says none of us should be satisfied with the result until it’s 100% compliant.

Berger says your odds of injury are four times greater if you’re not wearing a seat belt in a crash.

This Click It or Ticket campaign runs today through June 5th.
