Click It or Ticket Program Reminds Wrentham To Buckle Up
The Click It or Ticket program ran in Wrentham from May 14-June 3.
From May 14-June 3, local police had been working along side state police as part of the "Click it or Ticket Program."
The program saw an increase of officers on the streets of Wrentham in an effort to crack down on drivers who believe they did not need to wear a seat belt.
With the end of the program this week, it appears that town drivers understands the importance of wearing their seat belts.
“This effort has been successful throughout Massachusetts for several years,” Wrentham chief of police James Anderson said. “It has been well documented that wearing safety belts help reduce the risk of serious injury or death in the event of a motor vehicle accident. The program has received much media attention every year and I believe that motorists are paying attention throughout the Commonwealth.”
During the program’s mobilization, Wrentham police wrote 69 citations for speeding and nine for not wearing a seat belt. There were no other violations or crimes found during the stops according to Anderson.
"Seat belt use can be the difference between life and death. It is the best defense in a crash. Remember to Buckle Up, Every Trip, Every Time," Anderson said in the initial press release for the program's launch.
