Buckle up: Washington police step up seat belt enforcement patrols

Research has been found that lap/shoulder seat belts, when used, reduce the risk of fatal injury to front seat passenger vehicle occupants by 45% and the risk of moderate to critical injury by 50%. Buckling up is the law.

Remember from May 21 to June 3 - it's Click It or Ticket.

"The best way to protect yourself in a crash is by wearing a seat belt", said Mark Ezzell, director of the N.C. Governors Highway Safety Program. 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.

Participating law enforcement agencies are taking a no-excuses approach to enforcing the seat belt law and will be writing tickets. It also requires all children less than 15 years of age to be properly secured in the vehicle.

State laws requires motorists to wear seatbelts and children to be properly restrained in auto seats or booster seats.

"Our mission is to save lives and reduce injuries by getting more people to buckle up", Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley said.

In 2017, 42 percent of automobile fatalities in North Carolina were drivers or passengers who were not wearing their seat belt.

According to the most recent statistics released, 10,428 unbuckled motorists were killed in 2016 as a result of traffic accidents while an additional 14,668 lives were saved as a result of seat belt use during the same time.

The Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign is part of a national initiative aimed at reducing traffic fatalities and saving lives.
