– “Most Washington Drivers Are Safe From Tickets”
“Ninety-five percent of Washington drivers and passengers use their seat belts according to a new report from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission. That leaves only five percent of people who might be subject to seat belt tickets during the “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign.
The May 14 through June 3 extra seat belt enforcement campaign runs through Memorial Day, one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year.
More than 150 law enforcement agencies throughout the state will be participating in this 17th annual Click it or Ticket campaign.
[Note: Thurston County participants include Olympia, Evergreen State College and Yelm police, the Thurston County Sheriff’s Office and the Washington State Patrol. The report said that Thurston County is on par with the state’s observed seat belt use rate of 95%.]
