SHERIFF'S OFFICE TO PARTICIPATE IN "CLICK IT OR TICKET " DURING MEMORIAL DAY HOLIDAY

The St. Francis County Sheriff’s Office will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates all across the country for the 2011 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization,May 23-June 5.

During the mobilization, officers will be cracking down on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts – both day and night.

Because nighttime passenger vehicle occupants are among those least likely to buckle up and most likely to die in crashes when unrestrained, nighttime enforcement has become a priority of the Click It or Ticket mobilization. Of those who died in nighttime crashes in 2009, nearly two-thirds (62 percent) were not wearing seat belts at the time of their fatal crashes.

In 2009, 11,593 passenger vehicle occupants died in motor vehicle crashes nationwide between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

“Many more nighttime traffic deaths can be prevented if more motorists simply start wearing their seat belts. That’s why the St. Francis County Sheriff’s Office is strongly supporting enhanced nighttime enforcement of seat belt laws during the May 23 – June 5, 2011, Click It or Ticket campaign,” said Sheriff Bobby May.  “We will be out in force to remind drivers and occupants to always wear their seat belts – both day and night.”

High-visibility enforcement such as the Click It or Ticket mobilization is credited with increasing the national belt usage rate from 58 percent in 1994 to an observed usage rate of 85 percent in 2010.  Belt use saves thousands of lives each year across America. In 2009 alone, seat belts saved 12,713 lives nationwide.

Remember this May 23 to June 5: It’s Click It or Ticket. Buckle up and encourage your loved ones to do the same. It may even save a Life!
