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

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office participated in the national Click It or Ticket mobilization conducted May 20-June 2.  During the enforcement effort, deputies issued 16 seat belt tickets.  45 warnings were issued for various other hazardous moving violations.

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

Seven out of 10 people killed din Missouri traffic crashes are unbuckled.  Missouri's seat belt use has remained relatively unchanged in the last six years.  Missouri has 79 percent seat belt use, which is well below the national average of 85 percent.  Teens and pick-up truck drivers are among  those least likely to buckle up at 66 and 63 percent.

Buckle up and Arrive Alive.  For more information on Missouri's seat belt use, visit www.saveMolives.com.
