Subject: Click It or Ticket 2018

Platte County Sheriff's Office will be joining with statewide law enforcement May 21- June 3 for an aggressive "ClickIt or Ticket" mobilization to crack down on Missouri's seat belt violations.

In 2017, six out of ten people killed in Missouri traffic crashes were unbuckled. Motor vehicle drivers in Missouri have an 84 percent seat belt use, which is well below the national average of 90 percent. Teens and pick-up drivers are among those least likely to buckle up at 70 and 69 percent.

Seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.

Buckle Up and Arrive Alive. For more information on Missouri seatbelt usage, visit click here.
