I learned how to buckle a seat belt when I was a kid, although many cars didn't have them until I was a teenager.  Still, it wasn't required by law for anyone in a vehicle to wear them.  Laws didn't begin being passed forcing occupants to wear seats belts until 1984 and that was only for front seats.  However, even in the 70s, my parents insisted that I wear my seat belt and that's when, for the most part, I made wearing a seat belt a habit.

Today after thirty to forty years of buckling up, I hardly think about doing it...I just do it!  It's a part of driving, a precursor to "hitting the road," even if I'm just driving one block.  As you know, wearing seat belts has been proven time and time again to save lives.  So if you don't wear a seat belt every time you are in a moving car, what are you waiting for?

If you don't wear a seat belt every time you're in a moving vehicle, Indiana law enforcement will be looking for you.  The latest "Click It or Ticket" campaign is underway through the rest of May.  There really is no reason why you can't buckle up and make driving safer for yourself and your passengers.  So, "just do it" before you get an unwanted reward (ticket) for not doing it.
