In North Carolina, it is the law to buckle up no matter where you sit.

Not wearing a seat belt can cost up to $161 in fines.

More than 10% of front seat passengers don't wear their belt.

In a crash, wearing a seat belt reduces your chances of suffering critical injuries or even death by 50%.

89.2% of men buckle up versus 93.1% of women.

In 1993, North Carolina became the first state to implement "Click It or Ticket".

In 2013, nearly half of the motor vehicle occupants who died in crashes were unrestrained.

Too many people wrongly believe they are safe in the back seat unrestrained. Half of all front-seat occupants killed in crashes in 2012 were unrestrained, but 61 percent of those killed in back seats were unrestrained.
