|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Beginning Monday, May 12, the Colorado Department of Transportation, Colorado State Patrol and 65 law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado are joining the nationwide Click It or Ticket May Mobilization effort to increase education and enforcement of seat belt laws.
Colorado’s efforts coincide with a national Click It or Ticket mobilization that focuses on the increased Memorial Day weekend travel.
“Memorial Day weekend kicks off the summer vacation season, and we expect high numbers of people traveling our roadways,” said Col. Scott Hernandez, chief of the Colorado State Patrol. “We want to ensure that everyone gets to their destination safely, and if that means we have to ticket them for not wearing a seat belt, we are more than willing to do so.”
