Totals during QPD Thanksgiving 'Click It or Ticket' enforcement
Seat belt enforcements were conducted from november 17-27th in Quincy by the Quincy Police Department.
The seat belt enforcements were meant to remind motorists to buckle up and not drive impaired, day or night, as part of the nationwide 'Click It or Ticket' mobilization.
QPD joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across the state to reduce highway fatalities by issuing citations to unbuckled motorists and arresting impaired drivers.
During the 10-day enforcement, the following were issued:
- 63 seatbelt citations
- 2 expired registration citations
- 13 no insurance citations
- 2 no license citations
- 1 operaring a vehicle with expired registration
- 3 speeding citations
- 1 stop sign violation citation
- 1 warrant arrest
- 2 warning tickets
The annual Click It or Ticket mobilization may be over in Quincy, but that isn’t an excuse to stop buckling up. Not wearing your seat belt is a primary offense, meaning law enforcement can stop you and issue a citation for that alone.
“Our officers are out year-round. If you or your passengers, front or back, are caught not wearing a seat belt, you will be cited for the violation,” says Deputy Chief Doug VanderMaiden.
