2018 Child Passenger Safety Mobilization
September 16th - 29th
OUR CURRENT FOCUS
2018 May/June Mobilization Highlights
2018 May/June "Click It or Ticket" (CIOT) Seat Belt Mobilization in review.
Everyone at Buckle Up PA (BUPA) would like to extend our thanks and appreciation to all the Law Enforcement Agencies (LEAs) that participated in the May/June “Click It or Ticket” Mobilization. This mobilization brought 326 Pennsylvania Municipal LEAs, the Pennsylvania State Police and thousands of other departments across the country together for one common goal, to save lives.
Agency and individual contributions continue to make this mobilization a success. This year, BUPA LEAs had 25,935 contacts resulting in 22,441 citations being issued. Over 2,000 of those citations were directly related to Occupant Protection violations. It is the continued “Zero Tolerance” technique that lends credibility to the mobilization and earned media campaigns.
Another key aspect of the mobilization was that Pennsylvania joined with 24 other states in the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) Border to Border Seat Belt Enforcement Operation. This initiative highlighted agency cooperation along and across borders. Several departments took part in media events promoting the nationwide enforcement campaign.
We believe that a strong enforcement initiative is essential to promoting a successful seat belt campaign. Without our LEA partners, we would lose an essential means to reaching our goal of saving lives. Every one of those 25,935 contacts were an opportunity to change someone’s behavior or mindset and, quite possibly, their own life.
We at BUPA look forward to working with you and your agency on future mobilizations.
