The UCF Police Department will join agencies nationwide in a Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement wave that will go through June 5.

UCFPD will issue citations to motorists and passengers who are not wearing a seat belt, and violators may be subject to a $114 non-moving violation.

Seat belts can help prevent serious injuries during accidents and ultimately save lives. The simple step of buckling up makes roads safer for everyone.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 57 percent of passenger vehicle occupants ages 18-34 that were killed in crashes in 2014 were unrestrained.

UCFPD hopes that through targeted enforcement, drivers and passengers are encouraged to make buckling up a habit.
