Local law enforcement is raising awareness of the importance of seatbelt safety for this year's "Click It or Ticket!" campaign.

The Allen County Chiefs of Police, including officers from the Allen County Sheriff's Office, the Lima Police Department and the Ohio State Highway Patrol, teamed up to spread the word about getting in the habit of buckling seatbelts when in a vehicle. The kickoff happened at the same time as the 4-Wheel Jamboree, showing that even those in monster trucks practice seatbelt safety.  Buckling up when getting behind the wheel is the best thing to do to stay safe in case of an accident.

"Wearing your seatbelt keeps you in your seat inside your car safest place for you to be in the event of a crash," said Evelyn Smith with the Allen County Safe Community Coalition.  "There's nothing I can say that's more succinct then that or makes a better message."
