'Click it or ticket' seatbelt enforcement starts today

Buckle up: Washington police step up seat belt enforcement patrols

Buckle up: Washington police step up seat belt enforcement patrols

During the campaign, officials say law enforcement will adopt a "zero-tolerance approach toward violators".

The campaign, aimed at increasing seat belt usage through traffic safety checkpoints and enforcement patrols, occurs annually around the Memorial Day holiday, this year May 21 to June 3. To help keep drivers and passengers safe, Crawford County is reminding motorists to Click It or Ticket.

Statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) show that buckling up in a auto can reduce the risk of a fatal injury by 45 percent. Included is a national publicity campaign created to ensure that drivers and passengers recognize the life-saving value of seat belts. "If the enforcement crackdown wakes people up to the dangers of unrestrained driving and gets them to buckle up, we'll consider it a success". "Through continued enforcement and education, we hope to see more people taking the simple step of buckling up and fewer fatal crashes on Pennsylvania's roads". "I am frequently asked why we warn everyone in advance - the bottom line is not issuing citations, but saving lives", Sgt. Campbell said.
