Click It Or Ticket It

The signs are all over the state buckle up or deal with the law.
"it's not about going out writing tickets, and trying to make somebody's day bad, it's about trying to write the tickets to get the point across , it's important, it's a life saving tool.

A tool that helps keep drivers safe.
And riding along with law enforcement it didn't take long to find drivers not following the seatbelt law.

"That was in a matter to twenty four minutes there was one person not wearing their seatbelt at all, and one wearing it at all," says Officer Adam Davis.

And officers say even if you forget all it takes is a simple reminder.

"If that would make a sticky note, put it in their car, put it on the dash. And over time you will develop the habit," says Officer Adam Davis.

A habit they say will save lives.

"I've worked an accidents where a subject was ejected from the vehicle and if they weren't ejected, they possibly would have lived through the accident," says Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Stacy

And buckling up is something officers want to ensure parents teach to their children.

"A lot of times when you're married and you got a lot of other things going on in the vehicle, it's the first thing I do stop at the end of the driveway, put the seatbelts on or we don't roll," says Sheriff’s Deputy Mike Stacy

And once you break the law police will issue you a ticket immediately.
If you are issued a ticket you could possibly face a fine or appear before a judge.
But officers say if you take the simple steps to buckle up before you drive all of those consequences can be avoided.
