The Fargo Police Department is gearing up to conduct an increased seat belt enforcement campaign starting Friday, Jan. 11, through Saturday, Jan. 19, as part of the statewide Click-It or Ticket efforts.
According to the NDDOT 2011 statistics, 148 people died on North Dakota roads. "This could be your loved one in a future 2013 statistic, which should be an acceptable loss to your family or our community," said Sgt. Dorrheim. "Our hope is to heighten people's awareness of wearing a seatbelt each and every time they are traveling in a vehicle, it's such a simple step after getting into a car."
Officers will be looking for a wide range of violations along with individuals not wearing a seatbelt such as: Speeding, Red Light Violations, Stop Sign Violations, Texting/Distracted Driving, Lane and Right-Of-Way Violations.
