2014 Life Saving Click It Or Ticket Mobilization Begins

A Message from the Highway Safety Division & the Tyngsborough Police Department

During the month of May, the Tyngsborough Police department will be teaming up with with more than 133 local police departments in a state-wide crack-down on motorists who are not buckling up.  Tyngsborough will be taking part in the national Click It Or Ticket (CIOT) seat belt enforcement mobilization which is federally funded through the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security’s Highway Safety Division.

Beginning May 19th through June 1st, 2014, law enforcement officials will be out in full force looking for safety belt violators.

In Massachusetts in 2012, an estimated 50 lives could have been saved if everyone wore their seat belts. Statistics also show that passenger vehicle occupants are buckling up more during the day, but not enough at night.  While Massachusetts data is still being compiled, nationally, nighttime drivers are less likely to buckle up compared to daytime drivers. 10,480 passenger vehicle occupants were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes at night (6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m.) in 2012.  Of those killed in nighttime crashes, 55 percent were not wearing seat belts (compared to 41 percent of occupants killed during daytime hours of 6 a.m. to 5:59 p.m.).

As part of the day or night CIOT kickoff, at 6:00pm on May 19th, state and local police departments (including Tyngsborough) will join law enforcement agencies across the East Coast in mobilizing the CIOT “Border to Border” Operation which aims to provide increased seat belt enforcement at State Borders, sending a ‘zero tolerance’ message to the public: driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state, no matter what time.

Seat belts save thousands of lives every year, but far too many motorists are still not buckling up, especially at night when the risk of getting in a crash is even greater,

We want to make this the safest summer possible.  Buckling up is not optional; it’s the difference between life and death in a crash.  That’s why we’re out enforcing the law.  Click It Or Ticket, every time, day or night.

Our officers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt, including drivers that have neglected to properly buckle their children. Adults must remember that if they don’t buckle up then they can become unguided missiles during a crash and can severely injure other vehicle occupants, especially children.
