CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) - Buckle up or pay up.

Police across West Virginia are starting the first of four seat belt enforcement blitzes from Friday through Dec. 1.

The West Virginia Highway Safety Office and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration have provided highway safety funds to conduct three mini "Click it or Ticket" campaigns that go along with the national campaign scheduled every May.

West Virginia's seat belt laws are a primary law, meaning that police can stop a driver and issue a citation simply for not wearing a seat belt.

Officers also will be watching for drivers who are texting and talking on their cellphones without a hands-free device.
