While most Minnesotans understand that seat belts and child restraints save lives, thousands of drivers were cited not buckling up during the Click It or Ticket extra enforcement campaign from May 23 – June 5. Law enforcement handed out 7,233 seat belt and 213 child restraint citations to those who risk losing their own lives or others in the car. Among the violations, a 4-year-old riding on his mother’s lap and helping steer the vehicle. More information is available in our recent news release.
