'Click it or Ticket' campaign is running again until June 3rd

PSP PennDOT Focus on Summer Driving Safety With 'Click It or Ticket' Mobilization

Research has been found that lap/shoulder seat belts, when used, reduce the risk of fatal injury to front seat passenger vehicle occupants by 45% and the risk of moderate to critical injury by 50%. "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".

The Click it or Ticket Campaign is about saving lives and buckling up is the single most effective thing you can do to protect yourself in a crash. That's why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement.

State police say a $10.00 citation will be issued to drivers who are caught unbuckled, and a $75.00 fine will be given to drivers with an unrestrained child. The front seat belt usage rate in New Jersey now stands at 94.07%. "We don't want to have to write you a ticket, so please buckle-up, every trip, every time". If a driver is stopped by an officer and occupants aren't wearing the proper restraints the seatbelt laws will be strictly enforced. It also requires all children less than 15 years of age to be properly secured in the vehicle.

Nationwide almost half of all crash fatalities during 2016 involved drivers or passengers who were unrestrained.

In an effort to increase seat belt usage in Eastern Washington, 150 law enforcement agencies throughout the state will participate in this 17th annual Click it or Ticket campaign.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, almost half (48%) of the passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2016 were unrestrained.
