Patch Staff Report

The Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in the National Campaign for “Click it or Ticket” which runs May 19- June 1, 2014. The State of Georgia's “Click it or Ticket” Campaign starts on Tuesday.

The sheriff's office will continue to make seatbelt enforcement a priority. Last month’s seatbelt survey showed an increase to 97 percent. From the sheriff's office: 

Seat belts are the most effective safety feature ever invented and have helped save thousands of lives. Sadly, one in five Americans fail to regularly wear a seat belt when driving or riding in a motor vehicle. By maintaining the "Click It or Ticket" brand and awareness, we will continue to reduce seat belt fatalities on America's roads.

Tuesday, May 20 marks the kickoff of the 2014 One Hundred Days of Summer HEAT in the State of Georgia. During the next 100 days, enforcement efforts are geared toward speeding enforcement, DUI/BUI enforcement, and Aggressive driving. 

The goals of both campaigns are to reduce traffic crash fatalities and reduce injuries from traffic crashes.
