FULTON, Miss. (WTVA) -- "Click it or Ticket" is back.

Mississippi law enforcement gathered Thursday to make plans for the "Click it or Ticket" campaign which is set to launch Monday.

Law enforcement in nine counties are coordinating efforts to make this campaign a successful one in northeast Mississippi.

Officials say the number of deaths have decreased since Mississippi passed the seatbelt law in 2006.

Although numbers are down, there remains a significant number of people who refuse to buckle up.

"We have too many traffic fatalities in this area due to unbuckled drivers and we're just trying to make a difference-trying to change driver behavior," Sherman Chief of Police Joel Spellins said.

"It's a good program to just get people to buckle up. Most of our fatalities are unbuckled occupants," Mississippi Highway Patrol Trooper Jason Rowe said.

The "Click it or Ticket" campaign kicks off Monday, May 20 and continues through June 2.
