Click It or Ticket Campaign Reminds Motorists to Buckle Up
Tuesday, May 18, 2021
INDIANAPOLIS - Law Enforcement Officers will be out in greater numbers seeking to educate motorists about the importance of wearing a seat belt from now until June 6th.
Authorities say multiple agencies, both state and local, will be writing citations and conducting high-visibility patrols during the day, but especially at night, when unrestrained driving is at its peak (midnight to 4:00 a.m.). Under Indiana’s primary seat belt law, officers can stop and cite drivers and passengers just for failing to wear a seat belt.
Drivers can also be cited for each unbuckled passenger under the age of 16, and children under eight must be properly restrained in a federally approved child or booster seat.
Throughout the campaign, officers will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt enforcement, which means anyone caught not wearing one will receive a citation.
