Starting on Nov. 24, the Independence Police Department will aggressively enforce seat belt laws as part of the nationwide “Click It of Ticket It” mobilization.

According to IPD, nearly one in four Missouri motorists are still not wearing their seat belts, despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing one. As of this month, over 600 people have been killed on Missouri roadways in 2014. More than 60 percent of those fatalities were unbuckled.
