The 2013 “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign in LaPorte County has ended and the Sheriff's Office reports 187 seat belt tickets and seven child restraint citations were issued during the annual Memorial Day effort. The “Click It or Ticket” campaign is credited with increasing the national seat belt usage rate, from 58-percent in 1994, to an estimated observed usage rate of 86-percent in 2012, and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration statistics show that in 2011 alone, seat belts saved just under 12-thousand lives nationwide.
