Hudson County Sheriff's Office Conducting This Year's Click it or Ticket Campaign Through June 3

Law enforcement officers from the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office will be cracking down on unbuckled motorists and their passengers as part of the national “Click it or Ticket” campaign.

The initiative, which began on Tuesday and will run through June 3, includes high-visibility law enforcement seat belt checkpoints and patrols, as well as local and national publicity designed to ensure that drivers and passengers recognize the life-saving value of seat belts.

“Using a seat belt is the simplest way for a driver and their passengers to protect themselves when traveling,” said Sheriff Frank Schillari. “In 2010 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 12,546 lives nationwide.

“We must continue both enforcement and public outreach efforts that educate all motor vehicle occupants about the importance of buckling up, every ride,” he said.

During the 2011 “Click it or Ticket” campaign, 419 police agencies participated in the two-week initiative.

As a result of the effort, law enforcement officers issued 32,228 seat belt citations, 5,865 speeding summonses and made 953 drunk driving arrests.
