Police ramping up seat belt enforcement in ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign
Police departments across Wisconsin are looking for the non-bucklers over the next two weeks, in the interest of safety.
The annual “Click It or Ticket” campaign began Monday and will continue to June 2.
Thanks to designated federal funding, more patrol officers will be assigned to the highways and will be working longer hours to check on drivers and passengers to make sure they are using seat belts, which is a state law.
“Our top priority throughout the year is public safety, and wearing a seat belt is the single most important way motorists can protect themselves every time they travel,” said Craig Thompson, secretary designee of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation.
