Davis students hand out "tickets" for wearing seat belts

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA, Wash. - Students at Davis High School were handing out tickets Friday in to promote seat belt safety but they went to anyone who did buckle up on the way to school.

It was the last of four days that were part of the "Click It AND Ticket" program that has been used across the state.

"If we can help them, you know, understand the facts a little bit about what seat belt wearing can do for you," said Max Oakes. "Then we can help a lot of people out."

The ticket reminds students about the importance of buckling up and can be turned in for a chance to take home a cash prize. The winner receives $124, the same amount as an actual ticket for not wearing a seat belt in Washington state.
