Law enforcement agencies have a clear message for motorists with Memorial Day fast approaching: “click it, or ticket.”

With one of the busiest driving seasons of the year approaching, law enforcement officials are ramping up efforts to promote safe driving and curtail drivers from not wearing seatbelts.

“The general goal of Connecticut’s Occupant Protection Program is to maintain safety belt use rates at a level that is consistently above the national average,” according to state police. “The Click It or Ticket enforcement campaign is a key tool in public awareness and enforcement for safety belt use.”

During the campaign, local law enforcement agencies will be teaming with state police during the month of May in an effort to “encourage everyone riding in a vehicle to wear their seatbelts.”

According to the Connecticut State Department of Transportation, “efforts are undertaken to increase awareness and adherence to Connecticut’s occupant protection laws with a priority given to enforcement and education.

“Partnerships have been built with representatives from law enforcement, media, health professionals, education, and local civic organizations. Programming includes enforcement activities, such as checkpoints and participation in national mobilizations.”
