'Click It or Ticket' Seat Belt Enforcement Begins

The Pennsylvania State Police are joining PennDOT and law enforcement agencies across the country for the national "Click It or Ticket" seat belt enforcement campaign.

According to a Washington Traffic Safety Commission report, Spokane and Whitman counties lag behind the state with observed seat belt use rates of 93.7 percent and 91.4 percent respectively, Stevens County beats the statewide average slightly with an observed rate of 95.5 percent.

Before the campaign begins, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) - in partnership with the Ohio Traffic Safety Office and the West Virginia Governor's Highway Safety Program - will host a briefing Tuesday in Ashland for all law enforcement participants.

Officers stress this campaign is not about writing more tickets but saving more lives.
