Click It Or Ticket Emphasis Patrols On Now

The County wants to alert you that 'Click it or Ticket' Emphasis Patrols are underway this week through June 5. Consider yourself warned, so if you get pulled over you don't have any excuse.

Did you know...

• A seat belt reduces your chance of dying or being severely hurt in a collision by about 70%.
• An air bag is designed to work in conjunction with the seat belt and might not even deploy unless you are hit from the front or rear.
• Seat belts are particularly life saving in a roll-over collision where ejection from the vehicle greatly increases your chance of dying.
• Washington State has one of the highest rates of seat belt use in the USA and the world. Let’s keep it up!!
