Click It or Ticket

New Glarus and Belleville Police Departments to mobilize for Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement from June 22 to July 5, 2020

 

June 18, 2020



The New Glarus and Belleville Police Departments will intensify their enforcement of the mandatory safety belt law during the annual Click It or Ticket mobilization from June 22 to July 5. More than 300 law enforcement agencies in Wisconsin are expected to participate in this year’s Click It or Ticket, according to a joint news release from New Glarus Police Lieutenant Jeff Sturdevant and Belleville Police Chief Bill Eichelkraut.

All too often when responding to a crash, our officers find people killed or seriously injured because they were not buckled up. That’s why we’re serious about safety belt enforcement. To save lives and prevent injuries, our officers will stop a vehicle and issue tickets whenever they see a driver or passenger not wearing a safety belt. The goal is not to write more tickets, but to convince people to buckle up voluntarily so that eventually we can reduce the number of preventable traffic deaths to zero in Wisconsin. But if voluntary compliance fails and people ignore the law as well as common sense, we will provide a very convincing reminder about wearing their safety belts.
