9-year-old racer urges you to buckle up

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) A car crash happens every eight minutes in Utah and that number is going up. That's why a 9-year-old race car driver is reminding Utahns to "click it or ticket."
 
Tuscan Nuccitelli is joining law enforcement in the campaign from May 22 to June 4. 
 
They will be stopping and issuing tickets to drivers and passengers who are not wearing seat belts. 
 
Tuscan reminds us why it's so important to buckle up. 
 
"I was going in to turn 3 and 4, then I hit the wall about 60 MPH, and then I had my seat belt on. So if I did not have my seat belt on, I would not have walked out of that crash as I did," said Nuccitelli. 
 
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says seat belts reduce the risk of injury and death by nearly 50 percent. 
 
The "Click It or Ticket" campaign is part of Utah's Zero Fatalities program.
