For the next couple of weeks, officers from more than 130 agencies will be conducting overtime patrols and checkpoints in Louisiana, as Operation Click It or Ticket kicks off.

In a news conference Tuesday morning, Louisiana State Police demonstrated how a flipping vehicle can toss out a driver who is not buckled up.

A survey last year showed nearly 80 percent of drivers and front-seat passengers buckled up in Louisiana.

The campaign is nationwide through the National Highway Safety Commission.
