The fact that grown adults still have to be told to wear their seatbelt just blows me away. Yet, here we are again with the Click it or Ticket campaign fromThe Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning.

According to WXYZ, officers from police departments, sheriff’s offices and the Michigan State Police will be conducting seat belt enforcement across the state during the three-week period.

The Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign kicks off today and runs to June 6.

Michael L. Prince, Office of Highway Safety Planning director:

So often, critical injuries and the loss of life on our roadways could have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt. Wearing a seat belt is the easiest and most effective thing you can do to reduce injuries and save lives. Buckle up every trip, every time.

I'm always amazed when a friend jumps in my car and I have to remind them to put their seatbelt on. You would think the constant dinging would be enough but nope. I have one buddy that moans and groans about it every time we get in my truck and he says "ugh, I hate wearing my seatbelt." I'm like quite being a big baby and put in on.

For some reason, I thought the Click it or Ticket campaign originated in Michigan but it actually started in North Carolina back in 1993. Now, almost every law enforcement agency in the state participates in this campaign.

No one should have to tell you to wear your seatbelt...but here we are.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
