“Click It or Ticket” Enforcement period begins November 16th
Williston, N.D, (November 16, 2020) – From Monday, November 16th until Sunday, November 29th, the Williams County Sheriff’s Office will have extra patrol deputies on duty for the Click It or Ticket Campaign.
In 2019, 47% of North Dakota motor vehicle fatalities were not wearing a seat belt. Seat belts save lives and are the single most effective safety device to prevent death and injury in a motor vehicle crash. Not only does a seat belt restrain occupants in the vehicle’s designed protective space, it prevents them from colliding with other occupants in the vehicle.
“Wearing your seat belt when riding in a car is a simple thing you can do to protect yourself from being ejected in a crash or injuring other occupants,” said Sheriff Verlan Kvande. “Be sure to always wear your seat belt when traveling.”
Click It or Ticket is part of the Vision Zero strategy to eliminate motor vehicle crash fatalities and serious injuries on North Dakota roads.
