Click It or Ticket Begins Today
The national Click It or Ticket campaign begins today, and many local departments, including Fort Atkinson, Mukwonago, and Lake Geneva, are participating in the safety program. The initiative runs through June 6 and is to encourage safe seatbelt usage when driving. The press release states that 11% of Wisconsinites do not wear seatbelts, and they account for 43% of driving fatalities in 2020. There were more than 27,000 traffic convictions for seatbelt usage just in the Badger state last year. You can find the press release or information regarding the initiative in many local police departments Facebook pages.
