Police Kick Off ‘Click it or Ticket’ Campaign Before Holiday Weekend
Police have officially kicked off their nationwide 'Click it or Ticket' campaign ahead of the holiday weekend.
Obviously, the campaign was designed to enforce that people are wearing their seatbelts but according to ABC12, they also want to crack down on distracted drivers.
I still find it hard to believe that people still jump in their vehicle and don't throw on their seatbelt right away. Those are the people that believe it should be a choice. Well, it's not a choice so just wear your freaking seatbelt. I just don't get what the big deal is?
When it comes to distracted driving, we have a real serious issue in this country. Over the weekend while driving to Rock on The Range in Columbus, Ohio, I made it a point to look for people who were buried in their phones while behind the wheel. It's insane how many people are distracted and swerving on and off the roads. I don't know the stats but it has to be way higher than drunk drivers for sure.
Under Michigan law, drivers, front seat passengers and passengers 15 and under are required to be buckled up. Children must be in a car seat or booster seat until they are 8 years old or 4'9" tall, and children under 4 years old must be in the back seat.
The 'Click it or Ticket' campaign ends on June 3rd so buckle up bastards.
