The Jackson County sheriff’s office will join a statewide law enforcement effort Tuesday to get more motorists to buckle up.
The “click it or ticket” mobilization is intended to save lives.
The office said 21 percent of Missouri motorists still don’t follow state law, which requires all drivers and front-seat passengers to wear seat belts. If the driver holds an intermediate driver license, all passengers must wear seat belts.
Statistics show that 66 percent of people killed in Missouri crashes did not buckle their seat belts.
