Moultrie - Law enforcement agencies are cracking down on seat belt use for Thanksgiving holiday.

More than two dozen police, deputies, troopers and military officers from all over South Georgia kicked off "Click It or Ticket" today.

Officers say as drivers continue to refuse to buckle up they'll be waiting to give tickets. Sgt. Leonard Bell of Albany Police says, "I'd much rather give someone a ticket than have to tell a family member the person is no longer with them because person was not wearing their seat belt."

The kick-off was held at Moultrie City Hall on Friday. Colquitt County has had 96 road fatalities since 1994, making it one of the 16 highest fatality rates in Georgia.

Earlier this week, the county was awarded 31-thousand dollars from Governor Highway Safety to pay officers overtime and buy equipment for seat belt crackdown.

"Click It or Ticket" starts statewide on Monday and ends December first.
