Missouri Coalition For Roadway Safety To Launch “Click It Or Ticket” Campaign May 22-June 4

Although safety belt usage rate in Missouri has slowly risen over the past 17 years, reaching 81 percent last year,  the state is still well below the national average of 90 percent.

The Missouri Coalition for Roadway Safety is joining with state and local law enforcement May 22–June 4 in the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign to highlight the importance of wearing your safety belt.  “Safety belts decrease your risk of dying in a crash by 45 percent,” said Missouri State Highway Patrol Superintendent, Colonel Sandra Karsten, “And last year alone, 943 lives were lost in Missouri crashes – 64 percent of them being unrestrained.”
