The Kansas City Missouri Police Department will be joining efforts with statewide law enforcement on November 8, for an aggressive “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to get more motorists to buckle up and ultimately, save more lives.

“Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket enforcement,” said Sergeant Tamara Pronske, traffic enforcement supervisor. “We’ll be out there to remind you seat belts can – and do – save lives.”

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 13 percent of Missouri motorists still don’t. And even worse, 64 percent of occupants killed in 2017 Missouri crashes were unrestrained.
