Click It or Ticket: Troopers Remind Michigan to Buckle Up

The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning says 192 people killed in car accidents last year in Michigan were not wearing a seat belt.

That’s why law enforcement agencies are reminding you to buckle up.

Throughout the month of October the Click It or Ticket campaign is happening throughout Michigan.

Trooper Michael Birt says the Michigan State Police will have extra enforcement out on the roads during these two weeks, making sure drivers and passengers are being safe.

“In case of a crash or anything, it’s there to protect you,” he says. “You don’t want to be involved in a crash and not be wearing a seat belt because there are many things that may happen. So being able to enforce and ensure the safety for all, and that’s what we’re out here every day working towards.”

The fine for not wearing a seat belt in the state of Michigan is $65.
