The Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments is teaming up with MoDot for the “Buckle Up, Phone Down” campaign to tackle the growing traffic incidents across the Lake area.

Officials say data shows that the Lake is on track to experience a record number of traffic fatalities.

They’re asking everyone to “buckle up” every time they get into a car and make sure to put your phone in car mode or on Bluetooth, do you can keep your eyes on the road and avoid a fatal decision.

To help with the efforts, MoDot is introducing a “wall of fame” online for those who have taken the pledge to “Buckle up” and “Put the phone down.”
