Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Releases Results of Click It or Ticket Enforcement

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office ticketed five motorists for not wearing seat belts during the February 24 Click It or Ticket mobilization.  Law Enforcement agencies throughout Missouri participated in this statewide effort to get more motorists to buckle up - and save more lives.

During the enforcement effort, deputies issued a total of 10 traffic citations including: five seat belt tickets; one speeding ticket; one driving while intoxicated arrest; two suspended/revoked licenses; one uninsured motorist; and 33 warnings for other traffic violations.  One warrant arrest was also made.

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, nearly one in four Missouri motorists are still not making it click.  Seven out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.

"Seat belts are your single best defense in a crash," stated Sheriff Brad DeLay.  "We will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to buckle up and Arrive Alive."
