National Click It or Ticket Campaign May 21st - June 3rd

The Denville Police Department will be participating in the national Click It or Ticket mobilization aimed to increase seat belt use through a zero tolerance enforcement campaign from May 21st through June 3rd.

Click It or Ticket is a high-publicity law enforcement effort that gives people more of a reason to buckle up - the increased threat of a traffic ticket. Most people buckle up for safety. But for some people, it is the threat of the ticket that spurs them to put on a safety belt. In Click It or Ticket programs, law enforcement agencies are asked to mobilize to focus on safety belt violations and publicize the stepped-up effort through news media and advertising. It is the two-pronged approach that makes these campaigns powerful: Not only are tickets issued to unbelted motorists, but the surrounding publicity ensures that people know they are more likely to get a ticket.

Click It or Ticket campaigns and similar efforts have proven to increase safety belt use. In New Jersey, 350 police agencies participated in last year's Click It or Ticket Enforcement Mobilization. New Jersey's seat belt usage rate currently stands at 94.07%, up from 93.35% in 2016 and the highest usage rate that has been recorded.

Please remember to buckle up. Everyone, every ride, regardless of seating position. Wearing a seatbelt increases your chance of surviving a crash by as much as 75%!
