Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Rleases Results of Click It or Ticket Enforcement
The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office ticked two motorists for not wearing seat belts during the November 24th 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, officers issued a total of two traffic citations and 53 warnings were issued as a result of the enforcement.
Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, nearly one in four Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Six out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.
"Seat belts are your single best defense in a crash," stated Sheriff DeLay. "We will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to buckle up and Arrive Alive."
