Posted Updated

RALEIGH, N.C. — Click it or Ticket kicked off Friday, marking the 10th anniversary of the annual campaign.

North Carolina is celebrating its highest rate of seat-belt use in history -- just more than 86 percent.

State transportation officials estimate the increased rate has saved more than 1,600 lives, prevented more than 50,000 injuries and saved nearly $5 billion in medical and other injury-related costs.
