'Click it or Ticket' Campaign kicks off in Trumbull, Mercer counties

Posted: Updated:

Ohio and Pennsylvania are teaming up this year in the "Click It or Ticket" Campaign. 

The announcement was made Monday that the Highway Patrol, ODOT, Trumbull Safe Communities and more will be targeting people who do not wear their seat belt starting Monday through June 2.

"It's to better bring education to the public about wearing seat belts. They do save lives and law enforcement will be out there day and night. If you're not wearing your seat belt, a citation will be issued," said Lieutenant Brian Vail of Warren Ohio State Highway Patrol.

Lieutenant Vail also said that Ohio falls below the national average of seat belt usage and in the last two years, more than 1,000 people lost their lives on Ohio roadways when seat belts were available.
