FULTON, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — The City of Fulton Police Department will be taking part in their Click It or Ticket campaign.
Officers will be cracking down on drivers who are not wearing a seat belt between Monday, May 20th and Sunday, June 2nd.
Fulton Police will join New York State Police in the effort.
The campaign is credited with raising the number of people wearing seatbelts nationally from 58% in 1994 to 87% in 2014.
In New York State, 21% of deaths on the highway are because of people not wearing seatbelts.
That’s higher than alcohol or speed related deaths.
