Click it or Ticket Campaign

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Contact: Rob Tufano, CMPD Public Affairs Office

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police Department is participating in the statewide “Click it or Ticket” campaign. The goal of the two week campaign is to increase our local passenger belt usage from 87% to more than 90%.
 The last two checkpoints averaged 120 violations each day.  It is our hope that continued media coverage will encourage motorists to buckle up as we head into the summer months of continued vigilance by area law enforcement to keep drivers and passengers safe. 
Today CMPD conducted a scheduled seatbelt operation on Milton Road and the Plaza.  Here is the breakdown of the enforcement efforts.
