Click It for Safety
You’ve probably seen those infernal traffic checkpoints in your home town, slowing down traffic and causing drivers to quickly buckle their seatbelts. They are “Click It or Ticket” checkpoints, an education and enforcement program supported by the federal government and actively followed in Virginia.
Why does the federal government care whether or not you wear your seatbelt? Wearing a seat belt means you are 45% less likely to be injured in a fatal auto accident and 60% less likely to be fatally injured in a pick-up truck, SUV or mini-van accident. Less fatalities on our nation’s roads and highways means less police time at accident sites, less manpower and money spent on investigations, less money spent on emergency medical treatment – and not to mention saving lives is good for everyone.
There will be more “Click It or Ticket” checkpoints on our roads, and more police officers looking out for drivers who aren’t wearing their seatbelts. Do yourself a favor – make sure that you buckle up every time you get in your car, and make sure your passengers do the same. The life you save may be your own!
