This program uses the high visibility enforcement model which begins with intensive public education to inform people that law enforcement will be ticketing seat belt violators. After this wave of publicity, statewide enforcement patrols focus on people who are riding without proper restraints. When this program started in 2002, only 82 percent of drivers in Washington were buckled up. After the first round of Click it or Ticket the rate jumped to 92 percent. In the following years it continued to rise to 95 percent, one of the highest in the nation, where it has remained.
