Wrentham Police Enforcing Seatbelt Usage
Police stepping up enforcement on seatbelt violations.
The following is a letter from Wrentham Police Chief James Anderson.
In our continuing effort to save lives, the Wrentham Police Department, in partnership with the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s (EOPSS) Highway Safety Division (HSD), the State Police and over 120 other local departments, is launching a high-visibility seat belt enforcement mobilization called "Click It or Ticket."
The message is simple: Massachusetts drivers and passengers should always wear their seat belts or be prepared to face the consequences.
During the “Click It or Ticket” mobilization, which runs from May 14 through June 3, thousands of extra state and local police will patrol the state’s streets and highways in a concerted effort to promote and enforce seat belt use with the ultimate goal of saving lives.
Many departments across the state have adopted zero-tolerance policies for seat belt violations, signaling the increasing importance of seat belt use. In fact, if pulled over, everyone in the car found not wearing a seat belt will be ticketed.
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.
Chief of Police
