TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Several law enforcement agencies across Arizona remind those heading out on the freeways or just around town to buckle up.

The "Click it or Ticket" campaign is in effect after a study by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed about one in five drivers don't wear their seatbelt.

In 2012, almost 22,000 people died in car crashes. Of those, only about 10,000 people wore their seatbelts, according to the report.

The increase in enforcement mobilization will run from May 23 to June 6.

Officials said seat belts can reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about 50 percent when worn correctly.
