Seat belts reduce the chance of injury or death during a car accident but 13% of the motorists still don’t get it. According to recent statistics, 52% of all people who died in a car crash in 2012 were not wearing a seat belt. At night time the situation is worst. In 2012, 61% of the motorists who died in a nighttime crash were not wearing their seat belt.
To remind motorists that seat belts can save lives, the NHTSA launched Today its annual “Click it or Ticket Campaign”. Approximately 10,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide will participate in the “Click It or Ticket” mobilization from May 19 through June 1. This year’s campaign includes the “Fake-A-Rooney” advertisement that airs nationally through May 26.
