Click It or Ticket

With this shaping up to be a busy Memorial Day weekend for travelers, police in Ohio and Kentucky are launching the annual Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign.  The federally funded program, running through June 1, is designed to increase seat belt use.  Public safety officials say there have been some improvements, but there's still lots of work to do.

Ohio's 990 traffic fatalities last year was the lowest number ever recorded by the state. Still, that figure doesn't satisfy the Director of Ohio's Department of Public Safety, John Born.
