U.S. DOT Targets 45 Million Americans Still Not Buckling Up
As Forest Gump would say, ?Stupid is is stupid does.? U.S. Secretary of Transportation Ray LaHood today announced that while seat belt use is at a record high 84 percent nationwide, 45 million Americans are still not buckling up when riding in motor vehicles! In an effort to increase belt use and save lives, the Secretary today kicked off Click It or Ticket, a national enforcement mobilization that encourages all motorists to wear their seat belts ? day and night. Drivers caught not wearing their seat belt run the risk of being ticketed.
