Law enforcement plans another seat belt crackdown

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

The annual "Click it or Ticket" effort is supported by federal funding and no local monies are used.

"Buckling up is a simple task that can keep you and your family safe in the auto", said Officer Tim Bales of the Sarasota Police Department Traffic Unit, in a news release. During the campaign, officials say law enforcement will adopt a "zero-tolerance approach toward violators". Often, it could have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt.

The department is taking part in a national seat belt campaign, Click It or Ticket, that runs from Monday through June 3. Our law enforcement personnel see the consequences of not buckling up.

Arkansas State Troopers and other participating Arkansas law enforcement officers will join officers in six states next week in a coordinated Click It or Ticket/Border to Border enforcement operation.

Gaza Killings: Ireland Summons Israeli Ambassador
UK Prime Minister Theresa May has urged Israel to show restraint in the Gaza Strip amid the rallies. Despite the bloodshed, the embassy inauguration went on as planned in Jerusalem.

According to the most recent statistics released, 10,428 unbuckled motorists were killed in 2016 as a result of traffic accidents while an additional 14,668 lives were saved as a result of seat belt use during the same time.

"Wearing a seat belt is one of the most important steps in increasing survivability in a crash. Our job as a coalition is to make sure families are buckled up even before leaving the house", Drew said.

Poedubicky said a key focus of this year's campaign is to promote seat belt use by adults in all seating positions in the vehicle, both front and rear. "While we cannot always avoid a crash, we can take the responsibility to do everything in our power to protect ourselves and our loved ones".
