(AP) - State Police officers have already stepped up enforcement of West Virginia's roadways in preparation for Memorial Day weekend.
The Click It or Ticket campaign began today and ends Monday, June Fourth.
Last year, Click It or Ticket was credited with helping West Virginia raise its seat belt usage rate to an all-time high of 88-point-five percent.
A second campaign, Operation CARE, is to take place the weekend of Friday, May 25th through Monday, May 28th. The campaign, which stands for Combined Accident Reduction Effort, involves police from various agencies joining forces to decrease the number of accidents.
Another traffic crackdown, All American Buckle-Up Week, is scheduled for May 21st through the 28th. It focuses on educating drivers about the importance of seat belts and child safety restraints.
With all three campaigns, troopers will be focusing on counties and roadways where traffic crash rates are high.
