With Memorial Day fast approaching, area law enforcement wants to make sure you arrive safely to your destination.

The Florida Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles reports that last Memorial Day weekend, 30 fatalities were recorded and 57 percent of those involved non-seat belt usage.

Research shows those between ages 16 and 34 are least likely to buckle up.

In Georgia, there were 34 reported fatalities over Memorial Day weekend.

The Click It or Ticket wave in Florida starts Sunday and runs through June 4.
