Culpeper police plan ‘Click it or Ticket’ campaign

In an effort to save lives, the Culpeper Police Department will be on the lookout for seatbelt and child safety seat violations Nov. 11-18.

“We want people to buckle up,” said Sgt. Andy Berry, who is spearheading the initiative. “Wearing a seatbelt saves lives.”

During regular patrols, officers will be paying special attention to seatbelt and child safety seat violations. The intensive operation has been dubbed the Click-It-Or-Ticket Mini-Mobilization campaign after the annual nationwide effort, which often consists of extra grant-funded patrols and checkpoints.

Last year, Culpeper police issued 210 failure to wear seatbelt summonses.

The current initiative is designed to ensure motorists are obeying traffic laws and wearing seatbelts as we head into the heavily traveled Thanksgiving holiday.

“Too many people die in crashes simply because they don’t take a few seconds to buckle up,” said Police Chief Chris Jenkins. “It also is vitally important that a child is properly secured in an approved child safety.”
