LFP Police to join Click It or Ticket campaign

Wednesday, May 18, 2016

Washington law enforcement officers, including those in Lake Forest Park and the Washington State Patrol, will join the national Click It or Ticket campaign aimed at encouraging everyone to wear their seat belt on every trip.

Extra patrols will run from May 23 to June 5, 2016 and the Washington State Patrol will be participating in the extra patrols through the coordination of the King County Target Zero Task Force.

These extra patrols are part of Target Zero — striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030.  Additional information about the Washington Traffic Safety Commission can be found at www.wtsc.wa.gov.

An astounding 95 percent of Washingtonians wear seat belts according to WTSC 2015 annual seat belt survey. This makes Washingtonians some of the best citizens in the nation for buckling up!

Still, each year in Washington about 100 people who were not belted die in crashes.

A seat belt ticket is $136.
