GPD joins Click It or Ticket campaign

GREENVILLE – The Greenville Police Department will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates all across the country for the 2014 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization, May 19-June 1. During the mobilization, officers will be cracking down on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts – both day and night.

According to the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), 52 percent of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 were not wearing their safety belts at the time of the crash. In 2012, of the fatal crashes where safety belt information was known, 61 percent of the people killed on Ohio’s roadways were not wearing a safety restraint.

“Too many drivers and passengers are not wearing their safety belts, and it all too often ends in tragedy,” said Ohio Department of Public Safety Director, John Born. “Our goal is to save more lives; therefore, our law enforcement partners will be out enforcing safety belt laws around the clock.”

“Many more nighttime traffic deaths can be prevented if more motorists simply start wearing their seat belts. That’s why the Greenville Police Department is strongly supporting enhanced nighttime enforcement of seat belt laws during the May 19-June1 Click It or Ticket campaign,” said Chief Dennis L. Butts. “We will be out in force to remind drivers and occupants to always wear their seat belts – both day and night.”
