Law enforcement agencies prepare for 2017 Click It or Ticket mobilization

The Kenosha County Sheriff’s Department and Wisconsin State Patrol are among the law enforcement agencies across the state and the country gearing up for the Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization from May 22 through June 4.

Representatives of the Sheriff’s Department, State Patrol and the Racine County Sheriff’s Department held a kick off press conference at the Pleasant Prairie Tourist Information Center Thursday.

“We lose so many people in Wisconsin and across this nation because of no seatbelts,” Beth said. “(Wearing a seatbelt) is such an easy fix that saves lives every day.”

Here are all of Beth’s comments:

Lt. Nathan Clarke of Wisconsin State Patrol said Wisconsin has been improving in the number of people that use seatbelts, but that there is still room to do better. About 88 percent of Wisconsinites use seatbelts, but the national average is over 90 percent.

“The most dangerous thing you are going to do today is operate or ride in a motor vehicle,” Clarke said. “The number one thing you can do to make sure you arrive home safely to your family is wear your seatbelt.”

Here is video of Clarke’s comments:

During the multi-state Click It or Ticket mobilization “law enforcement agencies will join forces to provide increased seat belt enforcement at State borders, sending a zero tolerance message to the public: driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what State,” said a Sheriff’s Department press release.
