Click It or Ticket campaign kicks off

Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) – Monday is the first day of the annual Click It or Ticket campaign, where law enforcement will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt law enforcement.

Agencies across the state will work in greater numbers for longer hours to enforce the state’s mandatory seat belt law and other traffic laws. The goal is not to stop or cite motorists but to get the word out and publicly reinforce that the goal is public safety and voluntary compliance with traffic laws.

Wisconsin’s current seat belt use rate is the highest ever at over 89 percent. Still, about half the people killed each year in car crashes in Wisconsin are not wearing a seat belt. State Trooper Philip Horman says it is important to buckle up.  “Wearing your seat belt every seat on every trip is one of the most important things the driver can do to make sure he or she reaches their destination safely and their occupants in the vehicle.”

The Click It or Ticket campaign starts will run through June 2.
