Better Buckle Up — And Here's Why

Each year in Minnesota more than half of the motorist killed are not buckled up, resulting in about 150 deaths; another 400 unbelted motorists suffer life-altering injuries. A statewide Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign runs May 19 - June 4. Law enforcement will stop and ticket motorist and unbelted passengers for belt violations. A seat belt fine can be more than $100.

Click It or Ticket! It's the Law.

Minnesota's primary seat belt law requires drivers and all passengers to be buckled up or in the correct child restraint or booster seat. Law enforcement officers will stop and ticket motorists for seat belt violations — including unbelted passengers.

Buckle Up Everybody! Every Seat. Every Time.




Why Buckle Up?
  • It's the law!
  • In a crash, odds are six times greater for injury if a motorist is not buckled up.
  • Un-belted motorists are often ejected from the vehicle and are killed.
  • Seatbelts restrain motorists in the vehicles designed protective space giving the "room to live".
  • There's no excuse for not buckling up - a seat belt is your best defense on Minnesota roads plagued with speeding, distracted and impaired drivers.

Want to Keep Your Face From Breaking Out?

Seat belts are the simplest and most effective way to prevent death or injury in a crash – especially on Minnesota roads plagued with speeding, distracted and impaired drivers. In a crash, odds are six times greater for injury if a motorist is not buckled up. An unbelted motorist can crash into a windshield and slam into and injure other passenger.

Remember, seat belts may wrinkle your clothes but going through the windshield will damage your face or worse!
