Click it or Ticket

Posted on Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 2:49 pm

Pike County Sheriff’s Office will be joining efforts with statewide law enforcement Feb. 22, for an aggressive “Click It or Ticket” mobilization to get more motorists to buckle up – and save more lives.

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, nearly one in four Missouri motorists are still not making it click. In 2012, 70 percent of individuals killed in crashes in Missouri were unrestrained.

“Local motorists should be prepared for stepped up Click It or Ticket  enforcement,” Said Stephen Korte, Sheriff of Pike County. “We’ll be out there to remind you seat belts can-and do-save lives.”

Buckle Up and Arrive Alive. For more information of Missouri seatbelt usage, visit
