Seat belt enforcement campaign planned

Sheboygan County Law Enforcement agencies will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign from May 23 to June 5.

Officers from Kohler, Sheboygan, Sheboygan Falls, Plymouth, Elkhart Lake, Cascade and the Sheriff’s Department are stepping up seatbelt enforcement because far too many unbuckled drivers and passengers are killed or in- jured in traffic crashes.

During the Click It or Ticket mobilization and throughout the year, the goal is 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.

No matter if it is day or night, or a short trip or a long journey, everyone in a vehicle must buckle up.

Passengers need to wear a safety belt in the rear seats as well as the front seats. Buckling up is the best possible protection against being ejected from a vehicle during a crash or thrown around violently inside it and possibly hitting another person in the vehicle with massive force.
