LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- More Kentuckians are doing it than ever before - but police say it's still not enough.
The Click It or Ticket campaign is back.
Louisville Metro Police and officials in surrounding counties are joining the national movement. Their plan is to get more people to wear seat belts. Even though more Kentucky drivers are using their seatbelts, the state is still behind the national average.
"No one can predict when they would be involved in a serious or life-threatening injury collision, and therefore no one is immune," said Sgt. Kevin Hamlin of Louisville Metro Police.
Four-hundred and eighty-three people were killed in car accidents in Kentucky last year. Two-hundred and seventy-eight were not wearing seat belts.
