Merced California Highway Patrol wants to remind you, CLICK IT, OR TICKET

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has designated May 20 to June 2, 2019, as the national “Click it or Ticket” mobilization campaign.

This year NHTSA is requesting focused enforcement during night time hours due to the increased number of violations and fatal crashes occurring between the hours of 6:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.

In 2017, there were 10,076 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States.

Almost 57 percent of young adults (18 to 34) killed in crashes were completely unrestrained, and 59 percent of pickup truck occupants who were killed were not buckled up.

In 2017, 51 percent of men killed in crashes were not buckled up, compared to 39 percent of women.

To help prevent crash fatalities, cops across the nation will be stepping up enforcement from May 20 to June 2 to ensure that motorists are wearing their seat belts. Because there’s no excuse good enough for not buckling up.

The mission of the California Highway Patrol is to provide the highest level of Safety, Service, and Security.
