The Farmington Police Department is joining efforts with statewide law enforcement on Feb. 15 for an aggressive “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to get more motorists to buckle up—and save more lives.

Sixteen percent of Missouri motorists are still not wearing seat belts despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt. Even worse, 65 percent of occupants killed in 2017 crashes in Missouri were unrestrained.

“Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up ‘Click It or Ticket’ enforcement,” said Sgt. Sam Weekley. “We’ll be out there to remind you seat belts can—and do—save lives.”
