State Police joining seat belt effort

State police are cracking down on seat belt use. The Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop B, which includes our area, is joining in a statewide “click it or ticket” campaign on February 22nd to get more people to use their seat belts. State police say, despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, nearly one in four Missouri motorists are still not “making it click.” Preliminary 2012 statistics show 64% of individuals killed in Missouri traffic crashes were unrestrained.
