Every year thousands of people die because of car crashes, and one of the biggest reasons why the numbers are so high is because a lot of people don’t wear their seatbelt when driving a motorized vehicle. This is where the Click it or Ticket campaign comes in. Their initiative is to stop every person that is not wearing a seatbelt inside a motorized vehicle and ticketing them with a nice fine. Officials say that this is a concept that makes people wear their seatbelt because they don’t want to receive a hefty fine.
As of last year more than 40,000 people have died inside a motorized vehicle because they were simply not wearing their seatbelts, according to New York Times. “We are in a time of point where not wearing your seatbelt is becoming a trend among people and it is killing people day and night. That’s why we decided to make this campaign to make people feel obligated to wear their seatbelt.” said a New York City Chief Police.
