(ABC 6 News) - Click it or ticket. That's the message law enforcement from all over southeastern Minnesota sent today.

Officers from all over our area were at Kasson-Mantorville high school to kick off their campaign for enhanced enforcement of seat belt use. One of the speakers was hit head on by a drunk driver.

     "I have been there to support my family while my mom battled and won the battle against leukemia," said Adam Fredericksen. "I work at an amazing job that allows me to travel the world and everyday. I have an opportunity to do something great and pass a message on to others and that's all because I wore a seatbelt."

The goal is to get to zero fatal or serious injuries.
