Click It or Ticket" Seatbelt Safety Campaign Returns to JSU Campus

JACKSONVILLE -- May 21, 2002 -- The University Police Department will again participate in the Nationwide "Click It or Ticket" seatbelt safety compliance campaign. The seatbelt safety campaign on campus will run from May 25 through June 3.

These safety campaigns have increased seat belt use on the JSU campus, local cities, states, and even in an entire region of the country. For example, in May 2001, seat belt use in eight Southeastern states surged nine percentage points after an unprecedented region-wide Click It or Ticket campaign; half the states posted double-digit gains.

Combining public safety education with enforcement helps Click It or Ticket programs succeed. Times, dates, and locations of scheduled seatbelt compliance checkpoints will soon be published on the Alabama Department of Public Safety Web Page at: http://www.dps.state.al.us/.
