Albany -- If you drove on I-75 over the weekend, you probably noticed the flashing signs: Buckle-up, Every Trip, Every Seat, Every Time. It's part of the click it or ticket campaign that kicked off this morning in Atlanta.

State troopers are getting ready for the busy Memorial Day Holiday weekend, one of the state's deadliest. They point to statistics that prove seat belts save lives.  

"Our goal here is simply to save lives. In 2005, we lost 1,744 people to crash deaths. 379 were because of excessive speed, 545 were impaired, 40 percent of them were not wearing safety belts," says Bob Dallas of the Governor's Office of Highway Safety.

A commemorative field of flags was planted at today's kickoff in memory of the 1,744 Georgians killed in car crashes in 2005.
