Every time you get in the car, do you fasten your seatbelt?
One brave teen has joined the Click It or Ticket campaign in an effort to help save lives. Hannah Ruskey says a seatbelt is the reason she's still here today.
Law enforcement officials and staff members from the University of Toledo Medical Center gathered on Friday to kick off the 2014 national campaign. It's an effort to save lives and help reduce injuries in car accidents by wearing seatbelts.
Ruskey was honored with a Saved by the Belt award. On May 20, 2013, she was 17 years old when she was involved in a severe car accident that left her paralyzed. She hopes her story will inspire everyone who gets inside a vehicle to click the seatbelt.
"I recommend wearing your seatbelt and trying to pay as much attention to the road as you possibly can. Do not text and drive because it's not worth it. But seatbelt, definitely wear it, because it could save your life," said Ruskey.
On May 19, more than 900 law enforcement agencies around Ohio will join safety officials across the nation in the aggressive seatbelt enforcement blitz, which lasts until June 1.
Current seatbelt usage in Lucas County is 81.5 percent. Ruskey hopes to see it at 100 percent.
