County Police Participate in Click It or Ticket Enforcement
5/20/2013

Buckle up or beware!  The 2013 national Click It or Ticket campaign kicks off on May 20 and will last through June 2.  This campaign focuses on keeping the roads safe and saving lives by cracking down on those who don’t buckle up.

In conjunction with the national campaign, the Albemarle County Police Department will be stepping up our traffic enforcement efforts.   The ACPD will have multiple officers working grant-funded overtime shifts to focus on traffic safety.  These officers will primarily focus on speed, seat belt use, drinking and driving and other traffic safety violations.

Speed, alcohol and distractions are the main causes of motor vehicle crashes.  Seat belt use is often a contributing factor in fatal crashes.  In 2012, the Albemarle County Police Department had 12 fatal crashes.  So far this year, there have been four fatal crashes with five victims. 

Please help us keep the roads safe in Albemarle County.  Drive smart, safe and sober.
