‘Click it or Ticket’ enforcement campaign kicking off today in Colorado

COLORADO (KRDO) -- Colorado's first click-it-or-ticket enforcement period of 2024 begins today, April 1. 

Click it or ticket is a national safety enforcement campaign focused on the consequences of not wearing a seat belt. 

From now until April 14th, the Colorado State Patrol alongside local law enforcement agencies will be increasing patrols and focusing on those not in compliance.

"We're going to be looking for occupants of the vehicles, whether you be drivers, passengers, children in the back seat. Colorado is a zero tolerance tolerant state when it comes to seatbelts. So, if we do find you without a seatbelt, you will be receiving a citation for the day," Trooper Gabriel Moltrer said.

According to Colorado State Troopers, 223 people died when unbuckled in 2023. They say 81% of people who survived deadly crashes were wearing seatbelts. Just 19% of those without a seatbelt on survived the same type of crash.

 Just a reminder, Colorado law requires the driver, every front-seat passenger, and anyone under 18 to wear a seat belt while riding in the car. Fines for not buckling up start at $65.
