Joining Forces Click It or Ticket Campaign Kicks Off Law Enforcement in Nevada Gears Up
Las Vegas, Nevada As a part of the Click It or Ticket campaign, the Nevada Highway Patrol will be Joining Forces with other law enforcement agencies around Nevada for a Seatbelt Enforcement Event. The Click It or Ticket Event will take place from November 18, 2019 through December 2, 2019.
This Click It or Ticket Campaign aims to increase law enforcement participation by coordinating highly visible patrols across the State of Nevada looking for seatbelt violations, providing safety about the use of seat belts and how significant they are during a vehicle crash. According to the National Highway Traffic & Safety (NHTSA) in 2017, there were a total of 10,076 unbuckled passengers and drivers who were killed in crashes in the United States. In that same year, 55% of the vehicle occupants were killed at night time not wearing their seatbelts. Law Enforcement agencies will be taking a no excuse approach to seat belt enforcement and will be issuing citations throughout the day and night.

The Nevada Department of Public Safety’s- Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) provides funding for law enforcement agencies to participate in Joining Forces to reduce traffic deaths and injuries on Nevada roadways.
