Law enforcement officers across Kansas will
be cracking down on motorists not wearing their seat belts in the
next two weeks.
The "Click It Or Ticket" campaign began Monday and lasts
through June 5.
Nearly 150 Kansas law enforcement agencies are participating in
the annual campaign.
The Kansas Department of Transportation says more than
two-thirds of the 388 people who died in traffic crashes in 2009
were not wearing seat belts. It says 89 percent of those who
escaped injury were belted in.
The transportation department’s website says 428 people died in
traffic accidents in Kansas last year, and 102 have been killed so
far this year.
