Click It or Ticket
This week, the Florida Highway Patrol (FHP) and area law enforcement partners are participating in the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign that runs May 23 through June 5. Day or night, individuals should buckle up because there is often no second chance. Buckling up is critical in order to avoid unnecessary injuries and death.
Remember to buckle up every time. A seat belt is your vehicle’s best safety feature. Set the example. Make sure your rear-seat passengers are also buckled. Seat belts plus air bags provide the greatest protection for adults, however, air bags alone are not a substitute for seat belts.
