Click It or Ticket
The tenth annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign kicked off today with a zero tolerance, round the clock sweep for motorists who fail to buckle up. This nationwide effort to increase seat belt use and save lives is running from May 24 through June 6 and more than 10,000 police agencies will enforce seat belt laws. According to the Transportation Department, seat belt use is at a record high 84 percent, but 45 million Americans are still not buckling up. An average of 38 unbelted people a day are killed in motor vehicle accidents.
Florida passed a law last year that allows law enforcement officers to pull over motorists not wearing their seat belts. For the next two weeks, officers will be on a life-saving effort to do just that. Seat belts save lives and buckling up will also protect your wallet. Click it or ticket!
