As motorists take the road this Memorial Day holiday, Oneida County Sheriff Robert Maciol is urging everyone to drive with care, buckle up, and have an enjoyable time during your travels. Since Monday, the Oneida County Sheriff's Office has been taking part in the 2013 national "Click It or Ticket" seat belt enforcement mobilization and cracking down on motorists who are not belted. In 2011, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide according to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. 52% of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 were not wearing their seatbelts at the time of the crash. Locally in Oneida County during 2010, an average of nine motorists per month who did not wear their seatbelts were injured severely enough to require hospitalization; two of whom sustained injuries severely enough to require inpatient hospitalization. In addition in 2010 in Oneida County, the treatment of those 113 injured people who did not wear their seatbelts resulted in $1.1 million in emergency department and hospitalization charges. Almost 5% of those charges were charged to public funds.
