Buckle Up to Avoid a Ticket and Arrive Alive

Raytown, MO- Nearly one in four Missouri motorists fail to regularly wear their seat belt in a motor vehicle. Only 76 percent of Missourians buckle up regularly, eight percent less than the national average of 84 percent.

Raytown Police announced today that they are joining with law enforcement November 18th, 2010 for an aggressive “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to crack down on Missouri’s safety belt law violators and to reduce highway fatalities.

Failure to wear a seat belt can be deadly. In 2008 there were 489 people killed in traffic crashes when not wearing a seat belt.  Seven out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.

            Every day someone dies in a crash in Missouri because they weren’t buckled up according to the Highway Safety Division.  The Raytown Police will be out there to remind you seat belts can and do save lives every day.
