THE COLUMBIA POLICE DEPARTMENT STEP UP SEAT BELT ENFORCEMENT ON THE "CLICK IT OR TICKET" STATEWIDE CAMPAIGN
The Columbia Police Department will be joining efforts with statewide law enforcement April 14, 2015 for an aggressive "Click It or Ticket" mobilization to get more motorists to buckle up and save more lives.
Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 21% of Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Even worse, 66% of individuals killed in crashes in Missouri were unrestrained.
The overtime will be paid for by a grant funded by the Missouri Department Traffic & Highway Safety Division. Seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
