RCPD will participate in Click It or Ticket campaign

Posted May 12, 2022 8:04 PM

Riley County police say that beginning on May 22, and continuing through June 4, travelers can expect increased police presence in Riley County as the Riley County Police Department joins 160 other law enforcement agencies in vigorously enforcing Kansas occupant restraint and other traffic laws as part of the 2022 Kansas Click It or Ticket campaign.

The aim of the campaign is to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes.

During Click It or Ticket, drivers will be met with extra enforcement of both the Kansas Safety Belt Use Act and the Kansas Child Passenger Safety Act. These statutes require that all vehicle occupants must be appropriately restrained.

This activity is sponsored by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT).
