Click it or Ticket Campaign Results

Avon, CO—The Avon Police Department joined in the nationwide Rural Click-it or Ticket campaign, March 31 through April 6.  The campaign resulted in 138 traffic stops, 75 citations, 61 seatbelt citations, and 11 non-traffic related arrests were made in Avon alone.  A pre and post seat belt surveys in Avon showed an 11% increase in usage by drivers at the end of the campaign.  Post enforcement campaign surveys indicated that 91% of drivers were buckled up! 

 “This significant increase in seat belt use will certainly reduce future injuries and or fatalities in our communities,” said Chief Bob Ticer. 

In 2009, over 250 people died on rural Colorado roads, and more than half were not wearing a seatbelt.  Colorado law requires all drivers and front seat passengers to wear seat belts. The minimum fine is $65 per violation. The driver is also responsible for properly restraining young passengers in the front and back seats. The minimum fine for violating the state's child passenger safety law is $82.

The Avon Police Department reminds everyone to buckle-up; it only takes three seconds.  Taking the time to do so can save your life as approximately 85 percent of traffic fatalities occur within 5 miles of home.  If involved in a collision, an airbag can only protect you if you remain in a vehicle during a crash.  People who do not buckle up are often killed because they get ejected from the automobile.  Wearing a seat belt will significantly increase your chances of survival while airbags provide supplemental protection. 

Funding for the “Rural” Click it or Ticket Campaign was provided through a federal grant from the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT).  During this campaign a strict “no warning” policy was issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Office of Traffic Safety. All seat belt violators  received a citation.

The Avon Police Department would like to thank those drivers that buckle-up and who chose to drive responsibly.  Remember to buckle-up, drive safe, and if you choose to drink, don’t drive
