Click It or Ticket Saves Lives
GOLF MANOR (5/25/2018) – The safety and security of the residents of the Village of Golf Manor and surrounding areas are vitally important. A large percentage of our residents regularly drive or ride in motor vehicles on our roadways. Statistics have proven that the use of seat belts in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 14,668 lives of occupants 5 and older in 2016 and that regular seat belt use is the single most effective way to reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
The use of seat belts is supported by the laws of the State of Ohio and the Village of Golf Manor. The Village recognizes that May 21 through June 3, 2018, has been selected as the national Click It or Ticket mobilization enforcement period when across the country law enforcement officers will actively be participating in the mobilization to ensure all motor vehicle occupants are buckled up day and night to reduce the risk of injury and death caused in traffic crashes.
The officers of the Golf Manor Police Department will be participating in this national effort with increased enforcement of seat belt laws coupled with publicity, both proven to be an effective method to increase seat belt use rates and decrease fatal crashes.
Have a safe and restful summer season from the GMPD!
