May 2024 Click It or Ticket Campaign

The spring 2024 Click It or Ticket enforcement period in Michigan will run May 20 to June 2. Police will be out looking for motorists not wearing their seat belts. It could cost you $65. Avoid the fine and reduce your chance of injury or death in a crash.

Seat belts save lives
During a vehicle crash, being buckled up helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle and reduces the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent.

Seat belts have saved 344,448 lives since 1975, when the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) first began recording this data. If everyone had been wearing a seat belt since, an additional 381,787 lives could have been saved.

It's vital that we all buckle up-every ride, front seat and back. But it can be more than just buckling up, wearing a seat belt properly is also essential.

Follow these guidelines when you buckle up: 

  • The lap belt and shoulder belt are secured across the hips and shoulder, which are more able to withstand crash forces than other parts of your body.
  • Place the shoulder belt across the middle of your chest and away from your neck.
  • The lap belt rests across your hips, not your stomach.
  • NEVER put the shoulder belt behind your back or under an arm.

Buckle up, Michigan!
