Governor’s Highway Safety Office concludes Click It or Ticket Campaign

 

Enforcement Blitz Buckled Down On Those Not Buckled Up-Day and Night

tdot-logo-lgNASHVILLE – Millions of travelers will hit the highways this summer and the Tennessee Governor’s Highway Safety Office is reminding everyone to Click It or Ticket. During 2007, 927 passenger vehicle occupants lost their lives on Tennessee roadways and of those, 534 were not wearing seat belts.  Today, the GHSO joined representatives from Georgia and Alabama to remind drivers of the dangers of traveling without a safety belt.

“It is a proven fact that wearing your safety belt greatly reduces your chance of being either killed or severely injured in a car crash,” said TDOT Commissioner Gerald Nicely.  “It takes just a second to secure your safety belt, but the repercussions of not wearing one can last a lifetime.”

Officials with the Tennessee GHSO joined representatives of border states, state and local law enforcement agencies and highway safety groups in supporting an aggressive national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign running from May 2 through May 31.  Police are ticketing unbelted vehicle occupants around the clock-night and day. «Read the rest of this article»
