May 23, 2016: Green County to mobilize for Click It or Ticket
Green County to mobilize for Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement from May 23rd to June 5th 2016
Green County will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign from May 23rd to June 5th.
We are serious about safety belt enforcement because far too many unbuckled drivers and passengers are killed or injured in traffic crashes. During the Click It or Ticket mobilization and throughout the year, our goal is not to write more tickets. Through enforcement and education, we’re determined to get people to buckle up every time they drive or ride in a vehicle.
Although the state’s safety belt use rate of 86 percent is the highest ever, approximately half of the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes last year were not wearing safety belts. In addition, last year there were nearly 55,000 convictions for failure to fasten a seat belt. That’s why Click It or Ticket is more than a slogan to our officers. It really is a life-saving effort.
