Kenneth City police to join national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement

Kenneth City

Police will join national seat belt enforcement

The Police Department will join other law enforcement officers for the national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization Monday through June 5. During the mobilization, officers will crack down on motorists who don't wear seat belts.

Because those in vehicles at night are among those least likely to buckle up and most likely to die in crashes when unrestrained, nighttime enforcement has become a campaign priority. Of those who died in nighttime crashes in 2009, nearly two-thirds were not wearing seat belts.

"Law enforcement will be cracking down on Click It or Ticket violators around the clock," Kenneth City police Sgt. J.D. Butler said. "If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled any time or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket, not a warning. No excuses and no exceptions."
