Pleasant Prairie PD “Click It or Ticket” effort yields citations
While intensifying their safety belt enforcement for “Click It or Ticket,” officers also issued citations and made arrests during traffic stops for the following:
- 68 speeding violations.
- 27 operating after revocation or suspension violations.
- 5 traffic sign or traffic light violations.
- 10 drunken driving arrests.
- 2 drug arrests.
- 1 felony arrest.
- 1 warrant arrest.
“Our goal during ‘Click It or Ticket,’ and for the rest of the year, is not to issue more citations, but to persuade people to voluntarily make the responsible decision to buckle up every trip, every time,” said Pleasant Prairie Police Chief Brian Wagner. “We hope that our safety belt enforcement and education efforts will increase voluntary compliance with the mandatory safety belt law, so that we can eventually reduce the number of preventable traffic deaths to zero in Wisconsin.”
