If you're guilty of riding without a seat belt, you may want to get in the habit of buckling up.

Colonel Steven G. O'Donnell, Superintendent of the Rhode Island State Police and Commissioner of the Rhode Island Department of Public Safety, said Rhode Island State Police are teaming up with state and local agencies to enforce the nationwide "Click it or Ticket" campaign.

The campaign begins Monday, September 23 and goes through Sunday, September 29th. State Police will be stepping up their enforcement of child restraint and seat belt laws.

It is Rhode Island Law that drivers and passengers must wear a seat belt; anyone pulled over for any reason who is not buckled up will get a ticket. Statistics also show that wearing a seat belt can save your life.
