CHECK OUT OUR WEBSITE AT www, May Click-It or Ticket returns Seat belt and child restraint viola- tions will be the target now through June 1, as troopers, deputies and city police officers work together to save lives and prevent needless tragedies on Minnesota roadways during the annual May Click-It or Ticket seat belt en- forcement campaign. Since many of our crash injuries and fatalities involving the non-use of seat belts occur at night, about half of the enforcement hours can be expected to be held during the time period between 4 p.m. and 1 a.m. Minnesota's seat belt law is a primary offense, meaning you can get stopped for not being appropri- ately restrained. Memorial Day will be a main focus time period, as it is in the top six dan- gerous holidays on our state roadways. Looking back from 2009 - 2013, the Memorial Day holiday weekend was the deadliest of the holidays, with at least 31 deaths and more than 2,060 re- ported crashes. According to Sgt. Jesse Grabow, Regional Public Information Officer, "This is nothing new that we expect from our motorists, and everyone iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiliiiiiiii iii i iii,i'i'iiiiii,ii needs to work together to ensure a safer environment on our roadways, es- peciaUy since we are certain that seat belts save lives." Preliminary data provided by the Department of Public Safety's Office of Traffic Safety shows that in 2013 there were 94 deaths and 247 injuries where the vehicle occupant was not buckled up. That data also shows deaths of at least two children under the age of eight - who were not prop- erly restrained in a car seat - and seven more were seriously injured in 2013. These enforcement and education projects are components of the state's Toward Zero Death (TZD) initiative. A primary vision of the TZD program is to create a safe driving culture in Min- nesota in which motorists support a goal of zero road fatalities by practic- ing and promoting safe and smart driv- ing behavior. TZD focuses on the application of four strategic areas to re- duce crashes -- education, enforce- ment, engineering and emergency trauma response. Local traffic safety coalitions strongly support these ef- forts. Bloodmobile in Rosen on May 23 ..........
