The annual Click-It-or Ticket campaign is officially underway through June 3rd.  More members of law enforcement will be staked out on the roads.

According to WILX-TV 10, this effort is not just about writing tickets, it's about saving lives and reducing the number of injuries in traffic crashes.  Troopers say buckling up can reduce the risk of serious injury or death by 45 percent.

Michigan has a 94 percent success rate of buckling up which is higher than the national average of 89.1 percent, so we want to continue that and raise it even higher if we can, said TPR. Marco Jones, a Community Service Trooper with Michigan State Police.
