Florida Highway Patrol crackdown is part of the March Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign.
The Florida Highway Patrol will be cracking down this month on people who do not wear seat belts.
The move comes as part of the national March Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign, according to an FHP release.
Florida law requires the use of safety belts by drivers, passengers in the front seat and all children under the age of 18 in a motor vehicle, FHP reports.
The FHP offers these safety tips:
-- Buckle up, every time. A seat belt is your vehicle's best safety feature. Set the example.
-- Drive sober. One drink is one too many.
-- Make sure your rear-seat passengers are also buckled. They are more likely to injure themselves and other passengers in a crash, if not buckled up.
-- Obey all speed limits. Traffic congestion and construction zones may require driving more slowly.
-- Seat belts plus air bags provide the greatest protection for adults. However, air bags are not a substitute for seat belts.
-- Don't drive distracted: Anything that takes your full attention off of the road, even for a second, could be deadly.
-- Seat belts save lives.
