Michigan’s Click It or Ticket Campaign Starts This Week
The fact that grown adults still have to be told to wear their seatbelt just blows me away. Yet, here we are again with the Click it or Ticket campaign fromThe Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning.
According to WXYZ, officers from police departments, sheriff’s offices and the Michigan State Police will be conducting seat belt enforcement across the state during the three-week period.
The Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign kicks off today and runs to June 6.
Michael L. Prince, Office of Highway Safety Planning director:
So often, critical injuries and the loss of life on our roadways could have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt. Wearing a seat belt is the easiest and most effective thing you can do to reduce injuries and save lives. Buckle up every trip, every time.
I'm always amazed when a friend jumps in my car and I have to remind them to put their seatbelt on. You would think the constant dinging would be enough but nope. I have one buddy that moans and groans about it every time we get in my truck and he says "ugh, I hate wearing my seatbelt." I'm like quite being a big baby and put in on.
For some reason, I thought the Click it or Ticket campaign originated in Michigan but it actually started in North Carolina back in 1993. Now, almost every law enforcement agency in the state participates in this campaign.
No one should have to tell you to wear your seatbelt...but here we are.
