Avoid A Ticket: Increased Click It Or Ticket Patrols In The Northland

Ken and I were just talking about this during the Breakfast Club Morning Show.  The fact that when I was young (dating myself, but in the late 60's, early 70's), wearing your seat belt wasn't a law.  In fact, it was a rare occurrence to see someone wearing their seat belt.  Don't get me wrong, they were there to be used, just, no one did.

DO NOT TRY THIS NOW, IT'S AGAINST THE LAW-but, my mom and dad use to let me STAND between them, on the front bench seat of the car when I was a toddler.  STAND!  Sometime, I thank my lucky stars to still be around.

Our local law enforcement will be out and about with increased Click It or Ticket Patrols, here's what you need to know.  You've been warned.
