This year's 'Click It Or Ticket' enforcement effort, coordinated by the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety, resulted in citations to 19,594 motorists for not buckling up.

The annual campaign, supported by more than 220 state and local law enforcement agencies, was held May 21-June 3.

The campaign's main objective was to encourage seat belt usage through enforcement of Kentucky's seat belt law.

In the process, officers also made 1,103 DUI arrests, 1,392 felony arrests, and 1,119 drug arrests.

They recovered 53 stolen vehicles and apprehended 1,757 fugitives.

They also cited 10,658 drivers for speeding, 419 for reckless driving and 5,072 people for having no proof of automobile insurance.
