Quotes

"Our annual Click It or Ticket campaigns have played a major role in raising awareness of the importance of always buckling up," LeBlanc said. "we believe that this campaign, coordinated nationwide by nhtsa, has saved countless lives by convincing motorists across the nation to always fasten their seat belts."
