Free McDonald's food for buckling up

If you're buckled up when you go through the drive-thrus at some McDonald's restaurants in Central and Eastern Kentucky between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Monday, police officers will be on hand to give you coupons for free food.

The giveaway is to kick off the annual Click It or Ticket campaign by the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet's Office of Highway Safety.

Those not wearing safety belts will be given an educational card explaining the benefits of the devices.

Everyone going through the drive-thrus will be given a key chain with the Click It or Ticket logo.

Police will not be handing out citations to those not wearing safety belts during the drive-thru promotion, according to the transportation cabinet.

Kentucky, with a 73 percent seat belt usage rate, is near the bottom nationally when it comes to buckling up. Police will be cracking down on those not buckled up during the Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign, which runs through May 31.
