Seatbelt Usage Rates
Click It or Ticket: A special traffic enforcement program called “Click It or Ticket” (CIOT) is conducted between April and June each year in Alabama. Multiple agencies and organizations participate in this effort, under the leadership of the Office of Highway Safety in the Law Enforcement/Traffic Safety (LETS) Division of the Alabama Department of Economic and Community Affairs (ADECA). Waves of public education and enforcement are conducted, working toward the single goal of improving seat belt use to increase highway safety.
The evaluations showed that overall Alabamians are getting the message; they know they should be wearing their seat belts. Restraint use increased from 92.0% in 2016 to 92.9% in 2017. Overall, the CIOT campaign was a great success
