Law enforcement officials launch holiday weekend safety campaign

ADDISON COUNTY — Law enforcement agencies in Addison County kicked off a high-visibility “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaign this week, one that will last through the holiday weekend and the end of next week.
The Addison County Sheriff’s Department wants to remind motorists to “Click It or Ticket.” In order to enforce seat belt and other traffic laws, state, county and local law enforcement agencies began stepping up enforcement on May 19 and will continue the campaign through June 1 with high-visibility patrols and safety check points throughout Addison County highways.
The efforts of our state, county, and local law enforcement agencies are part of a larger, national Click It or Ticket mobilization that runs May 19-June 1, according to Addison County Sheriff Donald M. Keeler Jr.
As motorists take to the roads to celebrate the long Memorial Day weekend, law enforcement officials across the nation will be ensuring that everyone buckles up.
“Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer vacation season, and we want to ensure that everyone arrives at their destination safe and sound,” said Cpl. Oscar Gardner of the Addison County Sheriff’s Department. “So, if you are not wearing your seat belt, you will be ticketed.”
