Maine law enforcement will start a two-week campaign Monday, May 22 to beef up enforcement of Maine’s seat belt laws.  The campaign is called Click It or Ticket.

“As we kick-off the busy summer driving season, it is critical that everyone buckles up, day and night – no excuses,” said Colonel Robert Williams, Chief of the Maine State Police. “Troopers are prepared to ticket anyone who is not wearing their seat belt, including drivers who have neglected to buckle their children.”

At 4:00 p.m. on May 22, Maine police officers will join law enforcement agencies across half of the United States in mobilizing the Click It or Ticket (CIOT) “Border to Border” Operation.  Law enforcement agencies will join forces to provide increased seat belt enforcement at state borders including on Maine Routes 1, 2 and 3.  The Route 1 effort is from Brunswick to Rockland, Route 2 from New Hampshire to Pittsfield, and Route 3 from Augusta to Belfast.

The Maine Bureau of Highway Safety has provided $313,403 to 45 Maine police agencies to pay for overtime to participate in the two-week effort. “Seat belts save dozens of Maine lives every year, but some motorists are still not buckling up, especially at night when the risk of getting in a crash is greater,” said Lauren Stewart, Director of the Maine Bureau of Highway Safety. “ Buckling up is not optional; it’s the difference between life and death in a crash.  That’s why law enforcement is out there enforcing the law.”
