The national "Click It or Ticket" traffic safety campaign is underway.  

State Troopers want you to remember to buckle up when you hit the roads for Memorial Day weekend.

Officers from more than 230 different agencies are working overtime to enforce the law.

According to State Troopers, Alabama ranks third for seat belt use.

But 70 percent of traffic fatalities are from those drivers who don't buckle up.
