SCSO to participate in “Click It or Ticket”
Published 7:31 am Wednesday, November 16, 2022
During the Thanksgiving holiday, about 10,000 law enforcement agencies nationwide will be out on the roads to remind drivers and passengers to buckle their seatbelts.
Thanksgiving weekend, millions of Americans will hit the roads, eager to spend time with family and friends. It’s one of the busiest travel times of the year, and unfortunately, that may mean more crashes.
During the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2020 (6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, to 5:59 a.m. on Monday, November 30), there were 333 passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes across the nation. More than half (52%) were unrestrained. (Information taken from NHTSA.GOV)
The St. Charles Parish Sheriff’s Office will be partnering with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for the “𝐂𝐥𝐢𝐜𝐤 𝐈𝐭 𝐨𝐫 𝐓𝐢𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐭” campaign which will span from November 19 – 26, 2022.
Remember: If you are caught driving while unbuckled, you will get a ticket—no excuses, no warnings. Wearing your seat belt is required by law.
