Buckling up during holiday travel

Buckling up during holiday travel (WICS)

Decatur Police have one message for you this Thanksgiving, buckle up!

The Decatur Police Department is joining forces with state police and the Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) to remind drivers to click it or ticket.

According to IDOT, statewide seat-belt usage is over 93 percent, but they want that number at 100.

Last year, 11 people died during the holiday travel season.
