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 21 – June 3. During the enforcement effort, officers issued a total of one (1) traffic ticket for speeding and one (1) fugitive was apprehended.  108 warnings were issued by deputies for various other traffic violations as a result of the crackdown.

“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.”

Six out of 10 people killed in 2017 Missouri traffic crashes were unbuckled. Missouri’s seat belt use has shown only modest improvement over the last six years.  Missouri has an 84 percent seat belt use, which is well below the national average of 90 percent.  Teens and pick-up truck drivers are among those least likely to buckle up at 70 and 69 percent.
