Gonzales Police Department Stepping Up Seatbelt Enforcement During “Click It or Ticket” Campaign
Properly fastening your seatbelt should be the first thing that drivers and passengers do when entering a motor vehicle. Seat belts are crucially important and they save thousands of lives every year. Unfortunately, Louisiana Police and are still seeing a disturbing number of deaths and injuries involving car accidents where occupants or passengers were not wearing their seat belts.
This month, the City of Gonzales Police Department will be stepping up the enforcement of seatbelt checks, including creating seatbelt checkpoints within the city limits, through a “Click It or Ticket” campaign.
With the beginning of the holiday season, traffic will be heavier at peak times of the day and it is important to have everyone in the vehicle properly buckled up at all times. Not wearing a seatbelt at night is especially dangerous, when the risk of being involved in a crash triples.
To help save lives, the City of Gonzales Police Department will be increasing high visibility seatbelt enforcement efforts around the clock. Motorists are urged to fasten their seatbelts for each and every trip; and encourage your loved ones to always buckle up to. You could save them the cost of a ticket, and even their life.
At Gauthier Amedee, we want to remind all Louisiana drivers to practice proper driver safety at all times. Keep your eyes on the road, obey posted traffic signals, and fasten your seatbelts before every trip. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that wearing seatbelts saved a total of 12,000 lives in 2013, so buckle up!
