Local officers participate in ‘Click It or Ticket’ Campaign

The Frankfort Police Department is joining the national “Click It or Ticket” enforcement campaign, hoping to remind local motorists to buckle up.

Beginning this week, officers will crack down on those who don’t wear their seat belts.

“We’ll be out in force — day and night — prepared to ticket anyone not wearing a seat belt,” Capt. Robert Warfel said.

In 2013, there were 1,161 motor vehicle collisions in Frankfort’s city limits — 142 resulting in injuries and 1 resulting in death.

Around 70 percent of 2013 crashes where the driver or passengers were not wearing seat belts resulted in injuries.

The campaign will run through Memorial Day.
