Seat Belt Enforcement

It's part of the St. Joseph police department's "Click It or Ticket" enforcement campaign. Officers are on the look-out for seat belt violators. And they've got good reason. In 2008 in the St. Joseph high schools alone, seat belt use averaged just 57%, even though it is the State's law. The department says just 77% of Missouri drivers as a whole buckle up. Yet 70% of Missouri's highway fatalities weren't wearing a seatbelt.
