McHenry County Sheriff’s Office Announces ‘Click It or Ticket’ Campaign Results
The McHenry County Sheriff’s Office today announced it issued 201 citations during the recent Memorial Day “Click It or Ticket” enforcement period.
While Illinois’ 2022 seat belt compliance rate was 93%, unbelted occupants still account for more than half of those killed in traffic crashes.
The “Click It or Ticket” campaign aims to change the behavior of the millions of people who don’t buckle up. Thousands of lives could be saved each year if every vehicle occupant was properly restrained when traveling.
During the enforcement period, McHenry County Sheriff’s Office wrote 58 citations for seat belt violations and took the following additional actions:
- 3 DUI arrests
- 1 Warrant arrest
- 10 Electronic Communication citations
- 14 Suspended Registration citations
- 3 Suspended/Revoked license citations
- 21 uninsured motorists
- 55 speeding citations
- 2 drug arrests
- 51 other various traffic offense citations
The Illinois “Click It or Ticket” campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation
with federal highway safety funds.
