Indiana’s 2013 Click It or Ticket effort begins Friday

TERRE HAUTE — As motorists take to the roads this Memorial Day holiday, the Vigo County Traffic Safety Partnership is urging everyone to buckle up as Indiana’s 2013 Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement effort begins Friday.

“As we kick off the busy summer driving season, it is important that everyone buckles up every trip, every time — both day and night. No excuses,” said Vigo County Sheriff Greg Ewing. “Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt.”

The special patrols will continue through June 2.

During the 2012 national mobilization of Click It or Ticket from May 18 to June 3, agencies issued 18,104 citations to drivers who were not wearing seatbelts. At the same time, there were 170 collisions and 12 fatalities on Indiana roadways involving unrestrained motorists. Of those, 91 ejections from vehicles occurred due to failure to use restraints.

During the 2012 Memorial Day weekend alone, there were 41 collisions and two fatalities occurring on Indiana roads involving unrestrained motorists, including 30 ejections from vehicles.

Nationwide, younger motorists and men are more likely to be killed in fatal crashes, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
