Seat Belt Enforcement Efforts Result in Tickets

The Scotland County Sheriff’s Department recently participated in the national Click It or Ticket mobilization conducted May 24 – June 6. During the enforcement effort, officers issued a total of 24 traffic tickets including 18 for seat belt violations, four speeding tickets and one other traffic violation. One felony arrest was also made as a result of the crackdown.

“Seat belts are the single best defense in a crash,” said Sheriff Wayne Winn. “Law enforcement will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.”

Funding for this effort was provided through a grant from the Missouri Department of Transportation’s Highway Safety Division in cooperation with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Missouri Safety Center.
