[ARCHIVED] CLICK IT OR TICKET - Enforcement Campaign

Go Safely

The enforcement effort is part of the national Click It or Ticket campaign focused on increasing seat belt use.

“Seat belts have proven time and time again to be life-savers,” said Sergeant Mike Parsons. “Buckling up should be second nature.”

At 96.2%, California has one of the highest seat belt use rates in the nation. However, 532 people killed in crashes statewide last year were not wearing a seat belt.

“Putting on a seat belt takes a few seconds and is your best protection in a crash,” said Sergeant Mike Parsons. “We want everyone to be as safe as possible when driving or riding in a car and wearing a seat belt is the easiest way to do that.”
