NHTSA and Local Law Enforcement Team Up For Click It or Ticket Over the Thanksgiving Holiday

Press Release
For Immediate Release-November 23, 2022

This Thanksgiving holiday, Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety is teaming up with the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on a high-visibility Click It or Ticket seat belt awareness campaign. From November 23 to November 27 the law enforcement community will be working together to reduce the number of fatalities that occur when vehicle passengers fail to buckle up. If they spot you without a seat belt on, they will pull you over and issue a ticket.

Last year, during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend in 2020 (6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 25, to 5:59 a.m. on Monday, November 30), there were 333 passenger vehicle occupants killed in traffic crashes across the nation. More than half (52%) were unrestrained. Nighttime proved more deadly than daytime, with 67% of Thanksgiving weekend fatal crashes occurring at night. These deaths represent needless tragedies for families across America and may have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt.

“Buckling your seat belt isn’t a suggestion, it’s the law,” said Sergeant Matzen. “Whether you’re driving cross-country or across the street, you must wear your seat belt. The bottom line is this: That seat belt may very well mean the difference between life and death. This Thanksgiving, and every day of the year, remember: Click It or Ticket.”

Your Rohnert Park Department of Public Safety wants to ensure that you arrive safely to and from any of your holiday festivities.
