(UNDATED) - State and local authorities are kicking off Indiana's "Click It or Ticket" campaign tomorrow.
Indiana State Police and those from more than 260 agencies are stepping up enforcing efforts targeting and ticketing folks who don't buckle up while they drive.
They kicked off the mobilization Thursday at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.
Many agencies are devoting overtime hours to the campaign.
The Indiana Criminal Justice Institute says that more than half of the 754 road fatalities on Hoosier roadways last year involved people who were not wearing seatbelts.
They say wearing seatbelts can up your odds of surviving a crash by 50%.
Seatbelt use has increased to a record 92.4% since Governor Daniels signed seatbelt legislation in 2007.
However, authorities say fatalities can still be avoided if more people buckle up.
The current click it or ticket campaign runs through June 6th, but others will follow this year.
