Officers and agencies from three states-Louisiana, Oklahoma and Texas-are partnering to kickoff this year's Click It or Ticket Campaign to encourage motorists to buckle up when they travel. 

Whether you are in the front seat or back, wearing your seat belt is the single most effective action you can take to protect yourself and your unborn child in the event of a crash. Being buckled up helps keep you safe inside your vehicle during a crash. If you ride without a seat belt, you could be thrown out of your car or collide with other passengers. 

Seat Belt Guide

Secure the lap belt below your belly so that it fits snugly across your hips and pelvic bone.

Place the shoulder belt across your chest (between your breasts) and away from your neck.

Never place the shoulder belt under your arm or behind your back.

Failure to wear a seat belt will result in a $200 fine.
