Seat belts can help save lives, and that's why local authorities are buckling down on those of you who don't buckle up.
Today law enforcement agencies announced they are gearing up for the Click It or Ticket campaign.
Day and night they will be conducting seat belt checkpoints, making traffic stops, and writing tickets to lawbreakers.
In 2005 more than 15,000 people died in traffic crashes. Over 50% were not wearing seat belts.
