The annual Click It or Ticket campaign will ramp up next week and local law enforcement agencies will be participating.
WHOP News has already received news releases from the Hopkinsville, Clarksville and Elkton Police Departments, the Logan County Sheriff’s Office and Kentucky State Police saying they plan to do extra work to find and cite drivers not wearing a seat belt.
Elkton Police Chief Bruce Marklin says his department participates every year in hopes of saving lives.
Chief Marklin says there is zero tolerance for those not buckled in, and that you will get a ticket if caught.
The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety promotes the program as part of a national initiative to crack down on people not complying with the seat belt law, but Chief Marklin says his goal isn’t to write tickets—it’s to save lives.
