Police in Easton and Phillipsburg are coming together to enforce seat-belt use.

The Easton and Phillipsburg police departments will carry out "Border to Border" seat-belt enforcement beginning 10 a.m. on Thursday, May 22, as part of the statewide Click it or Ticket mobilization.

The mobilization aims to reduce seat belt fatalities by coordinating highly visible, evening seat-belt enforcement checkpoints and details at well-traveled state border sites.

PennDOT data for the Lehigh Valley shows that in 2013, 14 people not wearing seat-belts were killed in crashes.
