Lawrence County Sheriff's Office to Participate in Statewide Seat Belt Enforcement

Lawrence County Sheriff, MO - The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office will be joining with statewide law enforcement May 24-June 6 for an aggressive "Click It or Ticket" mobilization to crack down on Missouri's safety belt law violators and to reduce highway fatalities.

Nearly one in four Missourians still fail to regularly wear their safety belts when driving or riding in a motor vehicle.  Seven out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.

"Every day someone dies in a crash in Missouri because they weren't buckled up," said Sheriff Brad DeLay.  "We'll be out there to remind you seat belts can - and do - save lives."

Sheriff DeLay said regular safety belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.

Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.  For more information on Missouri seat belt usage, visit www.saveMOlives.com.
