Click it or Ticket: Madison County Sheriff Mike Coyle is reminding motorists to buckle up as the Madison County Sheriff’s Office will join the nationwide ‘Click It or Ticket’ seat belt enforcement mobilization May 22nd through June 4th.

The campaign will include additional enforcement efforts over Memorial Day weekend, which historically is one of the highest travel periods of the year. According to NHTSA, motorists are 75 percent less likely to be killed in a rollover crash if they are buckled up. NHTSA also estimates that seat belts, when worn correctly, reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat passenger car occupants by 45 percent and the risk of moderate-to-critical injury by 50 percent. For pickup trucks, SUVs and van occupants, seat belts reduce the risk of fatal injury by 60 percent and moderate-to critical injury by 65 percent.

During this enforcement period, Madison County Sheriff’s Deputies will increase patrols looking for drivers who are speeding, driving distracted, or driving under the influence. In addition, deputies will conduct traffic safety checkpoints at approved locations looking for unbuckled motorists.
