The Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office along with the Atlantic Beach Police Department and the Florida Highway Patrol will have a zero tolerance policy towards unbuckled motorists from May 21 to June 3, 2007
Research from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration show that just 80 % of drivers and passengers in Florida are using their safety belts.
The “Click It or Ticket Florida” initiative is a Jacksonville and Florida campaign to educate drivers about seat belt safety.
We cannot say how strongly we feel about drivers buckling up. Even if an adult chooses not to use a seat belt, there is no excuse for not buckling up our kids. We hope all parents and care givers take the time to protect their children by putting on their seat belts.
