MN increases seat belt patrol for annual campaign

LAKE CITY, Minn. (WXOW) – The Minnesota State Patrol is reminding people to buckle up as they start their annual Click it or Ticket campaign.

The seat belt enforcement campaign is a part of the state's Toward Zero Deaths (TZD) initiative. The programs goal is to encourage motorist to practice safe and smart driving behavior.

Nearly 400 Minnesota agencies will be increasing patrol starting Monday, May 19, to encourage motorists to buckle up during the campaign.

In Minnesota, drivers and passengers in all seating positions, including the back seat are required to be buckled up or seated in the correct child restraint. Officers will stop and ticket drivers or passengers not wearing a seat belt.

The Minnesota State Patrol said in a crash, odds are six times greater for injury if a motorist is not buckled up.
