Law Enforcement Conduct 'Click It or Ticket' Campaign

Posted: Updated:

The Nevada Highway Patrol is teaming up with Washoe County Sheriffs Office, Reno and Sparks Police Departments for a "Click it or Ticket Campaign" through November 27, 2012.  During this time frame agencies will be conducting stepped-up enforcement for seat belt violations and helping spread the message that seat belts save lives. Larger volumes of traffic are anticipated on our roads and highways during this Holiday week and we want every motorist to know the importance of buckling up while driving or riding in a motor vehicle. In an effort to increase seat belt usage NHTSA has provided law enforcement agencies and NDPS with a federal grant to fund increased patrol throughout the state. 

"Click it or Ticket" is a national program sponsored by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It is the country's most successful seat belt enforcement campaign ever, helping create the highest observed national seat belt usage rate of 82 percent, and 92% for Nevada.

Teens have higher fatality and injury rates in motor vehicle crashes than any other age group. One of the most effective measures a teen can take to prevent injury and death in a crash is to wear a seat belt, but the majority of fatally injured teens are not buckled up. While observed seat belt use for teens has risen gradually, the majority of 16-20 year old vehicle occupants killed in car crashes continue to be unrestrained (62% nationally, 59% in Nevada).

"Always focus on your driving and be certain that everyone riding in the vehicle is buckled up every trip, every time." It only takes two seconds to buckle a seat belt and this injury-reducing and life-saving task should be an automatic practice for everyone riding inside a motor vehicle.
