Click It or Ticket: Seatbelt Use Campaign Kicked off in Illinois

Buckling up your seatbelt is the easiest and fastest way for you to ensure your safety on the road. It doesn’t take all that much, too, as wearing a seatbelt should practically be an intuitive action for all car drivers and passengers already.

It is in line with this message that local and state transportation departments as well as law enforcement offices such as the NHTSA, IDOT, and CARE have joined forces together to launch the 2016 Click it or Ticket .

Safety Reminders for All

The yearly safety campaign seeks to urge passengers in every vehicle on America’s roads to make sure to first fasten their seatbelt before turning on that ignition. No less than U.S. Transportation Secretary has reiterated the need for every driver and passenger to keep this reminder in mind.

Common as the concept may be, however, it appears that an annual event constituting a reminder for seatbelt use remains to be necessary. In 2014, for example, up to 49% of vehicle passengers killed in a car accident were found to have not been in their seat belts. The numbers go up for night-time accidents, where up to 57% were unrestrained, while daytime accidents recorded 41%.

Men are also more prone to dismissing the safety reminder, with as much as 53% of them involved in fatal crashes having been found to be unbelted. This does not mean that women are in the clear, though, as 40% is still too high a number.

These numbers overshadow what otherwise could have been great news with NHTSA data showing that seatbelt use rate has actually experienced a steady increase to 88.5 in the same year. The lofty–but very possible goal–however, is for casualties to be reduced even up to zero.

A Successful Campaign

This is why some Fort Worth car crash law firms agree that public campaigns backed by official government agencies are all the more important.

With information campaigns like Click It or Ticket, it just might not be long till the Illinois rate of seat belt usage, currently pegged at an impressive 94%, successfully achieve a full 100.
