OSHP launches Click It or Ticket campaign

Posted: Updated:
WARREN, Ohio -

The Ohio State Highway Patrol has launched its annual campaign to remind motorists to buckle up.

The week long Click It or Ticket enforcement program urges all motorists and passengers to wear their safety belts.

The Warren Post of the patrol will join forces with other local law enforcement agencies to crackdown on those not obeying the law.

About 80-percent of those who died in crashes in Trumbull County last year were not wearing seat belts.

"We see that every day with the crashes that we handle and the incidents that we investigate. We can clearly see that wearing a seat belt does in fact make a difference," said Lt. Brian Holt, Ohio State Highway Patrol Warren Post.

Among the eight fatal crashes on Columbiana County roads in2013, all of those who were killed were not buckled up.
