FHP enforcing seatbelt law with tickets

-A A +A

The wearing a seatbelt is the most effective way to help prevent injuries in the event of a traffic crash.

Unfortunately, many motorists do not use this important safety feature. 

   Florida Highway Patrol Troopers have started taking part in the 2013 National Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign. Motorists who are not buckled up run the risk of being ticketed. This includes any passengers who may be riding in the car.

   “The Patrol is committed to making the roadways safer through the use of education and enforcement campaigns such as Click it or Ticket,” said Col. David Brierton, director of the Florida Highway Patrol. “Seat belts have saved thousands of lives and are one of the most effective safety tools in your vehicle. Buckle up Florida, it is the law.”

   Since 2009, Florida’s primary safety belt law requires drivers and passengers to fasten their safety belts and has saved countless lives. 

   Three things to remember when it comes to seatbelts:

• Buckle up every time you get in your vehicle.
