Click It or Ticket campaign returns
CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- One in five Americans do not regularly put on their seat belts when driving or riding in a vehicle and that's why several law enforcement agencies will start up the Click It or Ticket campaign ahead of Memorial Day weekend.
The holiday weekend is the kick-off to the summer travel season. Cincinnati Police are teaming up with officers in Kentucky and Indiana to enforce seat belt laws.
In Kentucky and Indiana, not wearing a seat belt is a primary offense. That means an officer can pull a driver over if spotted not wearing a seat belt. In Ohio, officers can only give tickets if a car is pulled over for another offense.
The most common group not wearing seat belts are men ages 18 to 34. Fatal crashes are up nationwide for the first time in five years.
Click It or Ticket runs through June 1.
