The 2016 Click It or Ticket Campaign starts Monday, May 23, through Sunday, June 5. Law enforcement officials statewide, including the Pinehurst Police Department, are participating in the “Click It or Ticket” campaign to increase seat belt use.

From May 23-June 5, Texas law enforcement officers will increase their efforts to ticket drivers and passengers not wearing their seat belt. Memorial Day falls in the middle of this time period and marks the traditional start of summer, when many people take to the road to enjoy the long weekend with friends and family. All drivers and all passengers in the vehicle must be properly restrained.

Chief Fred Hanauer of the Pinehurst Police Department urges all motorist to “Buckle Up For Safety” during this campaign and always. It is the law and just makes sense.
