Click It or Ticket campaign kicks off in Pinehurst

Pinehurst PD click it or ticket

The Pinehurst Police Department is kicking off the 2016 Click It or Ticket campaign Monday, May 23, and Chief Fred Hanauer of the Pinehurst Police Department urges motorists to always “Buckle Up For Safety."  

"It is the law and just makes sense," says the chief. 

The 2016 Click It or Ticket Campaign runs May 23 through June 5. Law enforcement officials statewide, including officers with the Pinehurst Police Department, are participating in the "Click It or Ticket" campaign to increase seat belt use and improve safety. During the campaign, Texas law enforcement officers are increasing their efforts to ticket drivers and passengers not wearing a seat belt. 

Memorial Day falls in the middle of this time period and marks the traditional start of summer, when many people take to the road to enjoy the long weekend with friends and family. All drivers and all passengers in the vehicle must be properly restrained.

Stay safe, says the chief.
