Click It or Ticket campaign under way

Law enforcement officers from the Somers Point Police Department will crack down on unbuckled motorists and passengers as part of the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign.

Through June 2, the initiative includes high visibility law enforcement seatbelt checkpoints and saturation patrols, as well as local and national publicity designed to ensure that drivers and passengers recognize the lifesaving value of seat belts.

Last year, the front seatbelt use rate in New Jersey declined for the first time in 15 years, to 88 percent, police said. The campaign will focus on rear passengers, as well.
