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."

    The annual assessment of how entrepreneurs are doing across the country is out from the Kauffman Foundation — among the best watchers of the nation's startup scene. How do Florida and Tampa Bay fare?

    Lured by financial incentives, startup GeniusCentral relocated from Manatee County in 2015 to St. Petersburg, promising to creatye 40 new jobs. It took downtown space in an appropriately creative workpace for entrepreneurs. It did not last there, later moving back to less expensive space in Manatee. A new Kauffman Index report on entrepreneurship found that Florida is a good place to launch startups but a tougher place to grow them.
