The Cary Police Department announces ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign numbers
“Through the Memorial Day enforcement campaign, we helped make Illinois roads safer and spread the word that seat belts and child safety restraints save lives,” said Deputy Chief Christopher Winkelmann.
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, the Cary Police Department wrote 4 citations for seat belt violations and took the following additional actions:
- 2 cellphone violation citations
- 4 speeding citations
The Illinois “Click It or Ticket” campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds.
