(UNDATED) - Today through the Memorial Day holiday, Indiana State Police Troopers throughout the state will join officers from more than 250 state and local agencies, as well as thousands more across the nation, in the federally funded Click It or Ticket campaign.

This campaign is also federally funded through Combined Accident Reduction Effort (C.A.R.E.) overtime project.

During this period, troopers will be raising awareness about the benefits of occupant restraints through education and enforcement, and utilizing high visibility patrols and sobriety checkpoints to help ensure the safest environment for all motorists on Indiana roadways.

According to the Indiana Criminal Justice Institute, in 2015, there were 818 fatalities on Indiana roadways with 33 percent of those fatalities unrestrained.

"Statistics have shown that wearing a seat belt and properly restraining children in a child restraint seat dramatically reduces the possibility of injuries and death from a traffic crash," commented Indiana State Police Superintendent Doug Carter. "We are committed to ensuring everyone buckles up every time, all the time, to safeguard Hoosier's while traveling throughout Indiana."

The Indiana State Police remind motorists to:

  • Wear seatbelts and utilize child restraint devices.
  • Appoint a designated driver if you plan to drink alcoholic beverages.
  • Never ride with someone that has been drinking. Don't let them drive. Be a friend and take the keys.
  • To report dangerous and/or impaired driving, dial 911.
