Click It or Ticket: Law enforcement upping seat belt enforcement this week

ORLANDO, Fla. — This week, law enforcement agencies across Central Florida will be sending you an important reminder: Click It or Ticket.

It’s an effort led by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to crack down on seat belt violations.


The campaign runs from May 22 to June 4 lining up with the Memorial Day holiday weekend.

The agency said last year, nearly 1,200 people who weren’t wearing a seat belt were killed in crashes across the country.
