Summer means more people will be on the roads, and the Christian County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with IDOT to remind motors to wear their seat belts. The Christian County Sheriff’s Office will be participating in the national “Click It or Ticket” campaign starting this weekend and running through May 29.
Christian County Sheriff Bruce Kettelkamp says his office has received a grant to help step up patrols through the campaign.
Kettelkamp says the extra enforcement is just one way he hopes his office can prevent any tragedies during the upcoming holiday weekend.
Of the 1,093 traffic deaths in the state in 2017, where seat belt use was known, more than half of those killed were not wearing seat belts.
