Loudoun County and Leesburg to Join State Police in "Click it or Ticket"

According to the Loudoun Independent, "the Virginia State Police will participate in the 'Click It or Ticket' enforcement mobilization, along with hundreds of law enforcement agencies, including the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office and Leesburg Police Department. The campaign runs through May 31, 2009, and is aimed at increasing seat belt use in Virginia and ultimately saving lives."

"Special checkpoints and other stepped up law enforcement activities will be conducted during the mobilization.

"According to preliminary figures, in 2008, 612 traffic-related fatalities in Virginia involved vehicles equipped with safety restraints. More than half of the victims involved in the fatalities were not wearing a seat belt, according to preliminary numbers provided by the Department of Motor Vehicles, Virginia Highway Safety Office."
