Iowa law enforcement officials are urging people to buckle up this Memorial Day weekend. The 2013 National “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign is running from May 20th through June 2nd. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52-percent of the more than 21,000 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 car wrecks were not wearing seatbelts at the time of the crash.

In 2012, Iowa had 364 fatalities; 167 of those victims were not wearing seat belts according to Iowa DOT data.
