Between May 20 and June 2, law enforcement officials were out in full force, taking part in the 2019 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization and cracking down on motorists who are not belted. In conjunction with normal patrols, additional officers from the partnership conducted high-visibility efforts specifically designated to identify and intercept those driving without a seatbelt.
During this time, officers joined forces to provide increased seat belt enforcement at State borders, sending a zero tolerance message to the public: driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what State. Officers’ efforts provided the following results
- Seatbelt Violations- 137
- Child Restraint Violations- 9
- Operating while Intoxicated – 4
- Felony arrests- 2
- Criminal Misdemeanors- 17
- Other offenses- 71
