Crystal Lake Police Department announces ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign numbers
Crystal Lake, IL – The Crystal Lake Police Department today announced it issued 36 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 do not buckle up.
