LANSING (WKZO) -- Monday brings the start of another two week Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign. Police agencies across the state will be paying extra attention to whether drivers and their passengers are buckled up, and it comes at a good time.

Anne Readett, with the Office of Highway Safety Planning says compliance with seat belts has gone down in Michigan in recent years, from a high of 97 percent to the current 94 percent.

Remember -- you can get pulled over just for not wearing a safety belt. Readett says that women are generally better than men at making sure they're buckled up, and in fact, it's men in pick ups who have the lowest seat belt compliance rate.
