As summer months approach and road trips increase, Sheriff Amason wants to remind drivers of the importance of wearing seatbelts. This is part of the Click It or Ticket traffic enforcement program to help keep families safe on the road.
The Click It or Ticket campaign will run May 23 - Jun 5, 2022, and aims to educate on the importance of wearing seatbelts and the legal consequences, including fines, of failing to follow the seatbelt laws.
“Seatbelts save lives and it’s one of the most basic ways to protect you and your family in a vehicle. My goal is that every individual knows to never put your car in gear without making sure all occupants in the car have secured their seatbelt.” Sheriff Chris Amason said.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 10,893 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants were killed in crashes in the United States in 2020. The Click It or Ticket program goal is to raise awareness so this number will decrease every year. Take the time when you drive to protect you, your family, and others by wearing a seatbelt.
Click It or Ticket every time you ride or drive.
