Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Releases Results of Click It or Ticket Enforcement

Motorists Reminded to Buckle Up and Arrive Alive

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office ticketed one motorists for not wearing seat belts during the February 19th Click It or Ticket mobilization. Law enforcement agencies throughout Missouri participated in this statewide effort to get more motorists to buckle up — and save more lives.

During the enforcement effort, officers issued a total of four traffic citations including: one seat belt ticket; one speeding ticket; and two other traffic violations. 43 warnings were issued for various other violations as a result of the enforcement.

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, nearly one in five Missouri motorists are still not making it click. Even more concerning, six out of ten Missourians killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled.

"Seat belts are your single best defense in a crash," stated Sheriff Brad DeLay. "We will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to buckle up and Arrive Alive."
