Nearly 700 people with an appetite for chicken received a free T-shirt with their Memorial Day meals.
As part of the statewide Click It or Ticket campaign, Lexington police officers and their spouses and children handed out the shirts to drive-through customers at the Nicholasville Road Chick-fil-A Monday. To get the free shirt, the driver and all passengers had to be buckled up.
Lexington police spokeswoman Sherelle Roberts said 97 percent of customers were buckled up, and 675 T-shirts were given away between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The national average of seat-belt usage is around 70 percent, Roberts said.
