Seatbelt  

Safety belts reduce the risk of death or serious injury in a motor vehicle crash by up to 50%.  Massachusetts law requires all vehicle occupants to wear safety belts.  Yet belt use in Massachusetts is 67%, far below the nationwide average of 83%. 

Governor Deval Patrick's Executive Office of Public Safety and Security today joined national and state traffic safety and police representatives in announcing the annual summer "Click It or Ticket" safety belt enforcement effort. 

The Massachusetts Click It or Ticket initiative is funded by a federal highway safety grant and based on a National Highway Traffic Safety Administration model that includes "mobilization" periods of high-visibility traffic enforcement and community education.  This summer's "Click It" effort runs through July 30.

MassHighway, Turnpike Authority, and Registry of Motor Vehicles are partners in the safety belt effort.  MassHighway and Turnpike message boards this month are reminding motorists to buckle up.
