LA CROSSE, Wis. -

The La Crosse County Sheriff’s Department will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies for Wisconsin's annual "Click It or Ticket" safety belt enforcement mobilization later this month.

Deputies hope to motivate drivers and passengers to buckle up every time they drive or ride in a vehicle. The mobilization will run from May 20 through June 2.

About one out of five Wisconsin motorists does not buckle up, according to the Wisconsin Department of Transportation. The department notes that last year there were more than 100,000 convictions for failure to fasten a seat belt.
