Sheriff joins Click It or Ticket 2010
The Mohave County Sheriff’s Office joins Click It or Ticket 2010 to reduce crash deaths. MCSO warns motorists of stepped-up enforcement.
In 2008, 12,671 passenger vehicle occupants died in motor vehicle crashes nationwide between the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m., according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Nearly two-thirds (64%) of those who died were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crashes, compared to less than half (45%) of the passenger vehicle occupants killed during the daytime hours of 6 a.m. to 5:59 p.m.
“Nighttime drivers and passengers continue to be among those least likely to wear seat belts. Consequently, they are also among those most likely to die in motor vehicle crashes. That’s why the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office is supporting enhanced nighttime enforcement of belt laws during the May 24–June 6, 2010, Click It or Ticket campaign,” said Sheriff Tom Sheahan
High-visibility enforcement such as the Click It or Ticket mobilization is credited with increasing the national belt usage rate from 58 percent in 1994 to an observed usage rate of 84 percent in 2009. And belt use saves thousands of lives each year across America. In 2008 alone, seat belts saved 13,250 lives nationwide.
“Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket activities that will take place around the clock. If law enforcement finds you on the road unbuckled anytime or anywhere, you can expect to get a ticket — not a warning. No excuses and no exceptions,” said Sheriff Tom Sheahan.
Remember this May 24 to June 6, 2010: It’s Click It or Ticket. “Last year in Arizona, 333 people lost their lives in traffic crashes for failing to use installed seat belts or child safety restraints”, said Sgt Don Bischoff. Buckle up and encourage your loved ones to do the same. You’ll save the cost of a ticket and may even save a life.
