2016 May "Click It Or Ticket" Seat Belt Mobilization

Pennsylvania ‘s 2016
“Click It or Ticket”
Mobilization
May 16 – June 5, 2016

The 2016 CIOT Municipal Enforcement Mobilization will include a combination of Enforcement and Public Awareness. The Campaign, will re-energized law enforcement, gained Earned Media attention and together with Highway Safety Partners we will increase Seat Belt use, save lives and reduce injuries.

Buckle Up PA will continue our commitment for the 2016 “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization to save lives by taking Three Simple Steps.

We believe we can help reduce the number of lives lost due to unrestrained passenger vehicle occupants by following these three steps.

1. Enforce Occupant Protection laws
2. Educate Occupants
3. Increase Seat Belt and Child Safety Seat Use

The 2016 “Click It or Ticket” (CIOT) Seat Belt Enforcement Mobilization will take place from May 16 to June 5, 2016. Over 370 Pennsylvania Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies and thousands of police departments across the nation will be taking part in the Mobilization. BUPA is asking all law enforcement agencies to focus their time and resources in the areas where we have the best chance to increase seat belt use:

• Nighttime Occupants
• Occupants and Drivers age 18-35
• Pick-Up Trucks Drivers
• Roadways experiencing the highest numbers of unbuckled crashes/fatalities

Buckle Up PA is pleased to report that the number of Traffic fatalities in Pennsylvania totaled 1,200 in 2015, the second-lowest since recording-keeping began in 1928 and five more than the record low in 2014. Unbuckled fatalities increased, from 383 in 2014 to 413 in 2015.

Although slow, decreases in unbelted crashes at night are being recorded. There were 299 Occupant Fatalities at night in 2013 (9:00 PM to 5:00 AM) down from 437 in 2006. Law enforcement, working with regional LELs and highway safety partners, are playing a major role in reducing fatalities on our roadways.

Pennsylvania will join 15 other eastern states and Ontario, Canada in participating in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Border to Border Seat Belt Enforcement Campaign. State, county and local law enforcement agencies will be out in force on May 23rd, between the hours of 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM, enforcing safety belt laws. High Visibility Enforcement (HVE) operations, both day and night, on highways and interstates will be completed to address low seat belt use. Law enforcement agencies, for 4 hours, will send a “Zero” Tolerance message to the public: “driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state”.

At 6:00 p.m. on Monday May 23th 2016, Pennsylvania Municipal Law Enforcement Agencies will join other agencies across the East Coast in mobilizing the “Click It or Ticket” (CIOT), “Border to Border” Operation. HVE operations, both day and night, on highways and interstates will be completed to address low seat belt use at night. Law enforcement agencies, for 4 hours, will send a “Zero” Tolerance message to the public: “driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state”.

Last year during the operation, participating law enforcement issued citations for 4,270 seat belt and child safety seat violations, as well as 7,044 citations for other traffic infractions. A total of 211 checkpoints were conducted across the sixteen participating states. The state’s activity generated a great deal of Earned Media, including coverage by 41 television news stations and 132 newspaper stories.

BUPA will again join forces with PA’s Impaired Driving Projects to plan and coordinate Seat Belt and Impaired Driving enforcement details during the 2016 May/June CIOT Mobilization. The goal of this initiative was to reduce the number of unbelted and impaired driving crashes and fatalities through coordinated enforcement and public awareness during nighttime hours.

BUPA believes that strong enforcement is the key to success in this “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization and that is why participating departments are being asked to enforce the Pennsylvania Traffic Laws. Traffic Enforcement Zone (TEZ) Details, and Roving Patrols will be used to conduct seat belt enforcement. Law Enforcement Agencies will take a “Zero” Tolerance on all safety belt violations and to conduct 50% of enforcement at night in an attempt to persuade the remaining 17% of non-users to buckle up and increase seat belt use.

BUPA will be increasing high-visibility seat belt enforcement efforts around the clock to save more lives on our roadways. Motorists will be urged to fasten their seat belts, day and night … “Click It or Ticket”
