The Click It or Ticket campaign kicks off across the state today.

State Police Sgt. Jared Sandifer says during this wave of enforcement, you can expect to see more officers on the road making sure that everyone is buckled up.

Sandifer says not only is wearing your seatbelt the law, it could also save your life. He says your chance of being hurt or killed are greatly reduced if you buckle up.

Troopers say it’s important for parents to make sure their kids are properly restrained as well. He says even though this campaign only runs through Memorial Day weekend, drivers and passengers must buckle up every time they get in a vehicle.
