The 'Click It or Ticket' campaign kicks off today across New York State. Law enforcement agencies are cracking down on drivers who are not wearing their seat belts and The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is stepping up their efforts to encourage safe driving. They released a brand new commercial that will definitely make you think twice before leaving your seatbelt off.

This video pretty much speaks for itself. That particular scenario can happen to absolutely anyone. People who say "I'm a great driver," probably are, but that doesn't mean everyone on the road is. In fact some people out there shouldn't even probably have a license. That is why you have to do everything you can to protect yourself. According to the "Video Description" of the Video Above,

In 2013, there were 9,580 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. Why did you just get that ticket? Because the time to buckle up is before you've been ejected from your vehicle. In real life you don’t get a second chance. That's why cops give tickets.

You don't want to be in a position where you get one of these tickets. The average cost of a safety belt ticket is $50.00, but can range anywhere from $25-$100 depending on the unrestrained person's age. Most importantly, you don't want to lost your life. You're in control of your own fate. Make the right decision.
