SHERIFF'S DEPARTMENT WILL BE PARTICIPATING IN A CLICK IT OR TICKET DAY MAY 18-31 TO ENFORCE SAFETY BELT LAWS.

NEARLY ONE IN FOUR MISSOURIANS STILL FAIL TO REGULARLY WEAR THEIR SAFETY BELTS WHEN DRIVING OR RIDING IN A MOTOR VEHICLE. FAILURE TO WEAR SAFETY BELT CAN BE DEADLY. IN 2007, A DRIVER IN A MISSOURI MOTOR VEHICLE CRASH HAD A 1 IN 32 CHANCE OF BEING KILLED IF THEY ARE NOT WEARING A SAFETY BELT. IN CASES WHERE THE DRIVER WAS WEARING A SAFETY BELT, THEIR CHANCE OF BEING KILLED WAS 1 IN 1,294. SHERIFF KERRICK ALUMBAUGH SAID THAT REGULAR SAFETY BELT USE IS THE SINGLE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY TO PROTECT PEOPLE AND REDUCE FATALITIES IN MOTOR VEHICLE CRASHES. THAT IS WHY HIS DEPARTMENT WILL PARTCIPATE IN HIS CAMPAIGN. FOR MORE INFORMATION VISIT www.saveMOlives.com.
