The city of Fulton Police Department will join local and national law enforcement officers and highway safety advocates all across the country for the 2018 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization, May 21 through June 3. Often, it could have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt.

With the summer travel season nearly upon us, police departments throughout the area are stepping up efforts to ensure traffic safety.

"Seat belts are the first line of defense in the event of a motor vehicle crash and buckling up is the number one thing drivers and passengers can do to keep themselves safe in a auto", Major James B. Basinger, director, Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Patrol, said in a release. At night from 6:00 PM to 6:00 AM, that number soared to 56% of those killed.

Before the campaign begins, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) - in partnership with the Ohio Traffic Safety Office and the West Virginia Governor's Highway Safety Program - will host a briefing Tuesday in Ashland for all law enforcement participants.

The extra seat belt enforcement runs through Memorial Day weekend, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year. "Our job as a coalition is to make sure families are buckled up even before leaving the house", Drew said. "Seat belts save lives, and everyone - front seat and back, child and adult - needs to keep in mind to buckle up - every trip, every time". "While we cannot always avoid a crash, we can take the responsibility to do everything in our power to protect ourselves and our loved ones".
