You may hear more police sirens in the next few weeks and hopefully they're not after you!
Local police are picking up patrols for the national Click it or Ticket campaign.
Kentucky State Police Public Affairs Officer, Jonathan Biven, started patrolling Monday.
"Here in Post three we have 8 counties that we cover, and we're going to be out doing road checks at night. You'll see different enforcement areas where troops will be located, stopping cars really focusing in on these seat belts."
Last year about 720 people died on Kentucky roadways.
"A lot of these deaths and serious injuries could have been avoided could the person just taken a few extra steps to buckle their seat belts," says Biven.
This year, police are hoping to bring that number down.
"Last year, the 721 was down, I believe, 39 deaths from 2010. I would love to be able to stand up here next year and say we're down 50 to 60. Each year it has dropped, I think a few years ago it was up to 800 deaths."
KSP, other law enforcement agencies as well the the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, are working together from now until June third.
"This campaign is obviously working. I believe the public realizes we're going to be out there and you know if you're not buckling up for yourself buckle, up for one of your loved ones," says Biven.
And while the fine for being caught not wearing your seat belt is only 25 dollars, a seat belt saving your life is priceless.
