"Click It or Ticket" Focuses on Nighttime Drivers

IMG_0001The “Click It or Ticket” has been one of the most successful highway safety campaigns in history. Local and national law enforcers are gearing up to enforce the program this summer, but now there’s a new focus: wearing seat belts at night.

Data shows that drivers and passengers are less likely to wear seat belts after dark. Last year, 64% of people killed after 6 p.m. were unbelted, whereas a smaller 48% of unrestrained drivers were not wearing their seat belt. I have no idea why people are less likely to wear a seat belt at night, but it’s pretty obvious that they should.

According to Ray LaHood, the U.S. Secretary of Transportation: “Wearing your seat belt costs you nothing. Not buckling up can cost you everything.”

Are you less likely to wear a seat belt at night?
