(05/19/19) - Seat belts save lives! The two week Click it or Ticket campaign begins Monday, May 20.

Law enforcement agencies are taking a no excuse approach -- writing tickets day and night.

In Michigan, the penalty for a seat belt violation is $65-dollars plus local fees.

Of those killed in accidents in the U.S. in 2017, 59 percent were men and 39 percent were women.

All of them were not wearing seat belts.

In that same year, more than half of young adults ages 18 to 34 who were killed in crashes -- were not wearing seat belts either.

That's the highest of any age group.
