The Michigan Office of Highway Safety Planning (OHSP) has been granted significant federal funds to widely publicize over the Memorial Day weekend that hundreds of Michigan Law enforcement agencies will be taking part in the Click it or Ticket campaign.
This is a national mobilization to increase safety belt use through increased enforcement. Hundreds of Michigan police agencies are participating. The Michigan State Police will be posting patrols on every major travel corridor as well.
OHSP is committed to reducing traffic deaths and injuries in our state. Increasing safety belt use is the single most effective means we have to drastically cut fatalities and serious injuries.
Michigan law requires all front-seat passengers to buckle up. All passengers under 16 must wear a safety belt, in all seating positions. And, children under age 4 must be in an approved child safety seat in all seating positions.
Safety belts protect drivers and passengers in all types of crashes, even low-speed crashes that happen close to home. So remember this holiday, Click it or Ticket.
