Results of a study released today from the Ohio Department of Public Safety show more Ohio drivers are buckling up than ever. The survey was conducted by Miami University’s Applied Research Center in Middletown following May’s “Click It or Ticket” mobilization. During the program, anyone not wearing a seat belt when pulled over for another violation is fined. Researchers observed how many drivers wore seat belts before the two-week program, and then afterwards. The department says the study shows a record high of 73.1 percent of drivers are buckling up. That’s up 7.6 percent from April.
