'Clickit or ticket'

comments Leave a comment

(From a press release) The Virginia State Police will be joining other police agencies in the "Clickit or Ticket" mobilization campaign Monday through June 1.

Troopers will be on heightened alert for those not wearing their seatbelts during this campaign.

"Too many motorists, especially males between the ages of 18 and 34, think of themselves as invincible when it comes to driving or riding in a vehicle," said Colonel W. Steven Flaherty, Virginia State Police Superintendent. "The Click It or Ticket campaign is meant to save lives. A lack of seat belt use is deadly and Virginia is losing too many people in traffic crashes because of a failure to buckle up."

Virginia law states that drivers stopped for other violations can be cited if they are not buckled up. This law applies to all front seat passengers 16 years and over.
