Get Your “Clicks” on Route 66

KSAL StaffMay 3, 2013
States taking part in the "Get your 'Clicks' on Route 66" mobilization include Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona and California.

Kansas is teaming up with other states as part an effort to get drivers along historic Route 66 to wear their seat belts.

The crackdown begins Friday and will last 24 hours.

The effort started in 2010 with a handful of law enforcement agencies in central Oklahoma. It has now expanded to include highway patrol troopers, state police officers and other agencies in eight states along the famed “Mother Road.”

New Mexico State Police Chief Robert Shilling says seat belts are the best way for drivers and passengers to protect themselves.

Federal statistics show motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in rollover crashes if they are buckled up.
