Sturgeon Bay Police Participate in Click It or Ticket Campaign June 4

The Sturgeon Bay Police Department will join hundreds of other law enforcement agencies throughout Wisconsin for the annual Click It or Ticket safety belt enforcement campaign running now to June 4. Chief Arleigh Porter says, “Whether you’re a driver or a passenger, wearing a safety belt is the single most important step you can take to protect yourself every time you travel.” The department’s goal is to not write citations, but through education and enforcement, seat belt use will increase and we can prevent injuries and deaths. Wisconsin’s safety belt use rate is at 88.4 percent, the highest ever, but nearly half of the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes last year were not wearing safety belts. In addition, last year there were more than 68,500 convictions for failure to fasten a seat belt.
