Extra Seat Belt Enforcement May 22 - June 4

A typical day for Minnesota drivers includes encounters with distracted drivers, farm machinery, road rage, deer and other unplanned situations. The danger is that being a safe, confident driver won’t make a difference if a crash happens and the person isn’t buckled up. With the arrival of Memorial Day weekend and the anticipation of warmer weather, road trips, barbeques and fun at the lake, seat belt safety should be a part of every Minnesotan’s plans.

 Motorists who are not buckled increase their odds of being injured by six-times if they are in a crash. To continue educating motorists that seat belts save lives and it’s the law to buckle up, Prior Lake Police along with more than 300 law enforcement agencies across the state, will be participating in the statewide Click It or Ticket campaign May 22 – June 4. The extra enforcement and education campaign is coordinated by the Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety.
