Click It or Ticket Campaign Started May 22nd in Saginaw
Once again, the Saginaw Police Department is reminding motorists to “Click It or Ticket”. As part of the national seat belt enforcement campaign, law enforcement agencies around the country will be stepping up enforcement May 22 to June 4, 2017. As we approach Memorial Day weekend and the summer vacation season, we want to make sure people are doing the one thing that can save them in a crash: buckling up. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly half of the passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes were unrestrained. At night from 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m., that number soared of those killed. That’s why one focus of the “Click It or Ticket” campaign is nighttime enforcement. Participating law enforcement agencies will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt law enforcement, writing citations day and night.
