Click it or Ticket Campaign to Run Over the Long Thanksgiving Weekend

Law Enforcement in Minnesota, Iowa and several other states are teaming up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for a “Click it or Ticket” seatbelt awareness campaign over the Thanksgiving holiday.

From Wednesday through early Monday, extra patrols will be out making sure drivers and passengers are wearing their seat belts.

NHTSA says during the 2021 Thanksgiving holiday weekend, there were 361 passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes across the nation, 50% were not wearing a seat belt.  In all of 2021, more than 4 out of 5 passenger vehicle occupants ejected from vehicles in crashes were killed.
