Officials say police across Kentucky will be participating in a campaign this month to enforce the use of seat belts. 

The Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Office of Highway Safety said in a statement that the annual Click It or Ticket campaign will run Nov. 16-29.

Motorists are reminded to use their seat belts during the heightened enforcement. Transportation Cabinet Secretary Jim Gray says vehicle safety includes "buckling up - every trip, every time."

Officials said Kentucky had 567 motor vehicle fatalities last year. That number includes 300 people who weren't properly restrained.
