Every hour, at least one person in this country dies because he or she did not buckle up. Failure to use a seat belt contributes to more fatalities than any other single traffic safety-related behavior.

More than 60% of vehicle occupants killed in crashes in Tennessee were not wearing safety belts. Research shows it is almost nine times safer to wear your safety belt.

Unrestrained children are 4.2 times more likely to die in a crash than restrained children. Less than 1% of children properly restrained were killed.

Tennessee’s local and state law enforcement officials work strenuously to educate every Tennessean through the Click It or Ticket campaign as to the necessity of seat belt usage by utilizing safety checkpoints and public information messages.

Sponsored by the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, Tennessee’s law enforcement agencies and public health officials, Click IT or Ticket aims to reduce serious injuries and fatalities on Tennessee’s roadways by reminding everyone to buckle up!
