As summer kicks off and families hit the road for vacation, the Manchester Police Department is partnering with the Tennessee Highway Safety Office to remind motorists to “Click It or Ticket” now through June 4th.
Participating agencies across the state will increase seat belt enforcement as part of the National Highway Safety Administration’s nationwide mobilization.
“Buckle up. It’s such a simple task that can keep you and your family safe in your car, said Captain Dale Robertson.” “It’s more than that buckling up. It is the law. Our law enforcement officers see the consequences of not buckling up. We see loss of life. Often, it could have been prevented with a simple click of the seat belt. This should be automatic.”
In the City of Manchester, the maximum penalty for a seat belt violation is $50.
