Police to participate in seat belt enforcement campaign
FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Officials say police across Kentucky will be participating in a campaign this month to enforce the use of seat belts. The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet’s Office of Highway Safety said in a statement that the annual Click It or Ticket campaign will run Nov. 16-29. Motorists are reminded to use their seat belts during the heightened enforcement. Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray says vehicle safety includes “buckling up _ every trip, every time.” Officials said Kentucky had 567 motor vehicle fatalities last year. That number includes 300 people who weren’t properly restrained.
