The, will be conducting a Click It Or Ticket seat belt mobilization checkpoint on Thursday May 26, 2011 from 0700hrs- 1100hrs on Summer St. near Main St.
This effort will be our local kick off to the national seatbelt mobilization effort from May 23 – June 5, 2011. More than 12,500 Federal, State, Local and University police agencies nationwide will take part in this safety initiative. During the mobilization officers will be cracking down on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts both day and night.
Many motor vehicle crash deaths in our nation could have been prevented if motorists simply wore their seat belts. This is why our three agencies is strongly supporting the enhanced enforcement of seat belt laws during the May 23 – June 5, 2011 Click It Or Ticket campaign. Belt use saves thousands of lives each year across America. In 2009 alone, seat belts saved 12,713 lives nationwide.
Law enforcement will be cracking down on Click It or Ticket violators
around the clock. Local motorists should be prepared to buckle up. If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled anytime or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket — not a warning. No excuses and no exceptions.
Remember this May 23 to June 5: It’s Click It or Ticket. Buckle up and
encourage your loved ones to do the same. You’ll save the cost of a ticket and may even save a life.
