The Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office (CHSO) and The Chippewa Falls Police Department will join thousands of law enforcement agencies for this year’s Click It or Ticket seat belt campaign, one of the nation’s most important highway safety efforts. From May 24 through June 6, 2021, (CHSO/CFPD) will join officers statewide and nationwide, to patrol for longer hours to reinforce one safety message – BUCKLE UP.
The annual campaign coincides with the first summer travel holiday. “Wisconsinites are anxious to resume their holiday traditions and that often includes a long weekend getaway or a daytrip,” Sheriff Kowalczyk said. “With an increased number of cars flooding the roads for the upcoming Memorial Day holiday, it’s vital that we get the word out about the importance of wearing a seat belt.”
Currently, 89% of Wisconsin motorists wear safety belts. The 11 percent who fail to buckle up accounted for 43% of all the drivers and passengers killed in Wisconsin traffic crashes in 2020. CLICK HERE FOR MORE CLICK IT INFO.
