Click It or Ticket seat belt campaign kicks off

Xenia High School, the victor of the 2018 Spring High School Seat Belt Challenge, will be awarded with a check in the amount of $500, sponsored by All State Agent, Scott Pauley. To meet our goals enforcement must continue along with efforts to educate all motor vehicle occupants about the importance of buckling up on every ride.

From May 21 to June 3, Brown County law enforcement joins other agencies for the annual Click It or Ticket campaign to put a special emphasis on enforcing Wisconsin's mandatory seat belt law. "It's such a simple thing, and it should be an automatic next step after sitting down in a vehicle".

With the summer travel season nearly upon us, police departments throughout the area are stepping up efforts to ensure traffic safety. Buckling up is the law.

According to a report by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, roughly 95 percent of Washington drivers use their seat belts. At night from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, that number soared to 56% of those killed.

"The best way to protect yourself in a crash is by wearing a seat belt", said Mark Ezzell, director of the N.C. Governors Highway Safety Program.

Drivers can expect to see increased state and local law enforcement on the roads, searching for seat belt lawbreakers. During the campaign, officials say law enforcement will adopt a "zero-tolerance approach toward violators". "Our job as a coalition is to make sure families are buckled up even before leaving the house", Drew said.

Of the 597 motor vehicle fatalities in Kentucky previous year, 52 percent (308) were not wearing a seat belt. "Remember; never place a rear-facing infant seat in front of an air bag".
