Indianapolis— It's that time of year again. You better buckle up behind the wheel because police officers will be watching. The annual "Click It Or Ticket" campaign kicked off Thursday. More than 260 state and local law enforcement agencies are taking part in the program. As a result, drivers can expect to see many more police officers patrolling Indiana's roadways, looking for people breaking the state's seatbelt enforcement law.Really?

It is time that people stand up and say "enough is enough."
