IDOT, state and local police say they are not messing around this summer when it comes to getting people to buckle up.

 

The 14 weeks between Memorial Day and Labor Day are typically the deadliest on Illinois roads says I-DOT's Jessi Hopkins. She explains who they've found to be least likely to wear a seat belt.

 

 

Hopkins says they've also found younger males driving pickup trucks are less likely to buckle up. Police will be holding special seat belt enforcement zones, road side safety checks, and other details to help keep people safe on the roads this summer.
