HORNELL, NY – Hornell Police Captain Mike Sexsmith issued the following statement:
This May 22 through June 4, The Hornell Police Department is joining law enforcement agencies nationwide for the 2017 Click It or Ticket enforcement mobilization. We will be out in full force, cracking down on seat belt violations, issuing citations to anyone caught traveling without a buckled seat belt or transporting unrestrained children. We are determined to get the message across: Seat belts save lives.
Next time you head out on the road, make sure you and everyone in your vehicle are buckled up. Don’t just do it to avoid a ticket, do it so you arrive at your destination safely. Since it’s our job to help protect Hornell motorists, we’re taking Click It or Ticket seriously. If police catch you not wearing your seat belt on the road, you will get a ticket. We’re hoping you’ll get the message and buckle up every trip, every time, even after the crackdown period is over. Wearing your seat belt is required by law 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
So please remember, day and night, Click It or Ticket. You can find out more about the Click It or Ticket mobilization at www.nhtsa.gov/ciot.
This enforcement mobilization is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration with a grant from the New York State Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee.
Capt. Michael Sexsmith
