There’s no good excuse for not wearing your seat belt. Don’t wait until ‘next time’ to wear your seat belt − there might not be a next time. Start buckling up now!
Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel times of the year. With millions of Americans on the road en route to visit friends and family for the holiday, it is more essential than ever to ensure all vehicle passengers are buckled up. Law enforcement agencies across North Dakota are increasing patrols during the Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign through December 13 in an effort to save lives by making sure all drivers and passengers buckle up.
In North Dakota, historically more fatalities occur during Memorial Day, Labor Day and Thanksgiving than other holidays.
What can you do?
-If you don’t buckle up, the consequences can be deadly. Buckle up every time you ride in a vehicle.
-Use your seat belt properly, with the shoulder belt positioned snugly over the center of the chest and the lap belt low over the pelvis, not across the stomach.
-Insist that everyone in your vehicle buckles up.
Buckle up, every trip, every time. Seat belts save lives.
