Click It Or Ticket Starts Monday

Law enforcement across Virginia will be taking part in the Click It Or Ticket campaign soon. It starts this year on Monday, May 22nd and is an effort to crack down on people driving without seatbelts. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly half of the 22,441 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2015 were unrestrained. At night from 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m., that number soared to 57 percent 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.
