Indiana authorities to crack down on seat belt violations

INDIANAPOLIS (AP): Indiana State Police are warning motorists that law enforcement agencies throughout the state will be cracking down on people who don’t use seat belts.

State police announced it will be taking part in the “Click It or Ticket” campaign from Friday until May 30. State troopers will try to raise awareness of the benefits of restraints through education and enforcement, using high-visibility patrols and sobriety checkpoints.

Click It or Ticket is an annual enforcement effort supported by federal funding.

The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute says one third of the more than 800 people killed on Indiana roads last year were unrestrained.
