The 2016 national 'Click it or Ticket' campaign is officially underway.

In Toledo, Wendy's, the Lucas County traffic safety organizations and various law enforcement agencies held a news conference to promote the campaign, which focused primarily on awareness and enforecment.

"We're losing our moms and dads, our brothers and sisters, just because they're not wearing their seat belts," said Jamie Blazevich, a project coordinator. "They don't have to lose their lives. That safety device is there for a reason."

An aggressive enforcement campaign runs from Monday through June 5th nationwide.
