Dalton police conducting "Click it or Ticket" campaign

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, GA. (WRCB)-- The Dalton Police Department has announced it will participate in the national "Click it or Ticket" campaign, which begins November 15th.

As of October, just over 950 lives have been lost on Georgia Highways due to traffic crashes. 

While that number declines each year, the department says half those lives could have been saved if a seatbelt had been worn.

Motorists are reminded that any front seat passenger of a passenger vehicle, including pickup trucks, in operation on highways of Georgia must wear a safety belt. 

Any passenger of a vehicle under 18 years of age must wear a safety belt no matter where they are seated in the vehicle, and all children under the age of 6 years must be placed in an approved child safety restraint. 

Motorists should also be aware that not wearing a safety belt correctly with the shoulder belt across the chest will not give the passenger any protection if the vehicle that they are an occupant is involved in a crash.

The campaign runs through November 28th.
