MPD Participating in State Click It or Ticket Campaign
As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches and more drivers hit the roads, the Morristown Police Department (MPD) is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office (THSO) to remind motorists to “Click It or Ticket.” From November 16 - 29, participating agencies across the state will increase seat belt enforcement as part of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) nationwide mobilization.
According to NHTSA, in 2018, there were 9,778 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. In 2019, the MPD issued 390 citations for motorist failing to wear a seat belt or properly restraining minors. We continue to urge drives to buckle up and are committed to enforcing this important safety law.
