I like how Click It or Ticket is doing in Ohio, but I don’t understand why we don’t have it for the back seat. We need it in the back seat because that is where the kids are.
Click It or Ticket is the most successful seat belt enforcement campaign ever. It helped create the highest national seat belt usage by 82 percent. Safety belts are the single most effective way to protect and reduce accidents in motor vehicles. Because, when occupants are ejected from a car, the most likely cause of death is not being buckled up. Every hour, at least one person in this country dies because they don’t buckle up.
Failure to buckle up contributes to more fatalities than any other single traffic related behavior. It we have Click It or Ticket in the back seat, Ohio roads will be a much safer place.
