Click it or Ticket campaign kicks off today in Alachua County

By on March 15th, 2011

The Alachua County Sheriff’s Department plans on raising awareness on the importance of seatbelt usage, especially with males between the ages of 18 and 35. The campaign has already lead to 83% of drivers in America using seatbelts, an all-time high. However, in Florida, 73% of the deaths for males in traffic accidents between the ages of 21 and 24 happened because of not wearing a seatbelt. Through visible enforcement and education, the Alachua County Sheriff’s Department hopes to lower that statistic.
