In 2021, 555 unbuckled motorists were killed in crashes on North Carolina roads, including 28 during the Memorial Day Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign period.
Increased enforcement during specific campaign periods year-round is a key part of making North Carolina roads safer. 2021 marked the most traffic fatalities across the state since 1973.

With a significant loss in volunteers due to the impacts of COVID over the last 2 years, we are left with a HUGE hole that we need your help to fill.
