Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) —
State troopers say they're on the highways for the next to weeks, making sure you buckle up.
Up to 43 law enforcement agencies including Louisiana State Police are working close to 8,000 overtime hours in the "Click it or Ticket" campaign from now until November 26th.
They say this effort has reduced traffic fatalities over the last three years, and while traffic tickets are inconvenient, seat belts save lives.
"We want everyone to be aware that if you're wearing your sealtbelt, it's designed to keep you in the vehicle in the state of a crash, and that's the important thing, we want you to be safe in the crash." Sgt. Len Marie, Louisiana State Police, said.
