The Buckle Up in Your Truck (BUIYT) program was introduced in Alabama in 2005 after pick-up truck drivers and occupants were identified on both state and national levels as having the lowest recorded safety belt usage.

“Buckle up in Your Truck” was modeled after and operated in conjunciton with the 2005 Click It or Ticket program, a proven measure in increasing safety belt usage. The program’s 2005 success, led to repeated efforts in 2006 and 2007.

Alabama was one of eight southeastern states that participated in the initial BUIYT programs, for which CAPS performed evaluations of the programs based on before and after data, and compiled a comprehensive report for the programs.
