Even more than usual, cops are hunting Georgia's roads today for people who aren't wearing their seat belts.

That's because today is the kick-off for the national "Click It or Ticket" campaign.

State officials with the Governor's Office of Highway Safety are reminding you that your local cops, Sheriff's offices, and the Georgia State Patrol will be on an increased lookout for drivers and passengers who aren't wearing their seat belts.

Officials say the campaign is an effort to save lives.

In 2011, the state of Georgia had 421 traffic deaths that involved a victim who wasn't wearing a seat belt.

This year, the state is on track to see more than 400 of those deaths in 2013.

If they catch you without your seat belt, you could get a ticket and face a hefty fine.
