Click It or Ticket Initiative Begins in Essex County on May 19

May 19, 2014 at 3:35 PM

WEST ORANGE, NJ - Several law enforcement agencies in New Jersey are participating in the annual Click It or Ticket national campaign, beginning on May 19 from 6-10 pm. In addition to New Jersey, the seat belt enforcement effort will be taking place in New York, Vermont, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachussetts, Pennsylvania, Delaware, West Virginia, Virginia and Maryland and coordinated across state borders.

Checkpoints and roving patrols will be set up near border crossings to enforce seat belt usage, and the May 19 effort launches . This targeted operation signals the beginning of the Click It or Ticket campaign, which runs in New Jersey through June 1.

The are approximately 125 agencies in 11 states participating, including 21 in New Jersey: Montvale, Northvale, River Vale, Franklin Lakes, Pennsauken, Haddon Twp., Palmyra, Ewing Twp., Burlington City, Pohatcong, Phillipsburg, Essex County Sheriff, Passaic County Sheriff, Jersey City, North Bergen, Guttenberg, West New York, Union City, Fort Lee, Bergen County Police and New Jersey State Police.

In Essex County, participating local police departments are Belleville, Fairfield, Livingston, Irvington, Millburn, and Montclair, including the Sheriff's Office.

“Because we border three other states, New Jersey is a vital cog in this enforcement effort,” said Division of Highway Traffic Safety Acting Director Gary Poedubicky. “The border crossing to our north, west and south are heavily trafficked areas important locations to deploy law enforcement to ensure that seat belt laws are being obeyed.”

Last year, during the 14-day crackdown, participating agencies gave out 26,049 seat belt citations, 612 child restraint citations, 4,895 speeding citations, and made 860 DWI arrests.

“Despite major advancements in vehicle manufacturing and technology, seat belts remain the most effective safety feature available in cars today,” Poedubicky said. “Simply put, a seat belt can mean the difference between life, death, or serious injury. Encouraging New Jersey residents to buckle up is an ongoing priority of our division and the many law enforcement agencies with whom we work.”
