ST. LOUIS (KMOV.com) – Law enforcement in Missouri are cracking down on teenage seat belt violators by starting a campaign called ‘Buckle up…it’s no joke.’

According to the Missouri Highway Patrol, 32 percent of teens do not buckle up when out on the road, and seven out of 10 teenagers killed in car crashes were not wearing a seat belt.

The Missouri Highway Patrol said they will crack down on the problem for the remainder of March by giving tickets to anyone not buckled up.
