UCF Police: Click It or Face a $114 Ticket

Posted March 3, 2015

UCF Police is joining agencies around the state in a Click It or Ticket wave that will go through March 14.

The campaign happens to fall within UCF’s spring break, a busy travel time for students. More activity on roads means greater risk for accidents, and seat belts can help make the roads safer for everyone.

UCFPD’s goal is to encourage drivers to make buckling up a habit. Seat belts can help prevent serious injuries during traffic accidents and ultimately save lives.

Officers will be looking for unbuckled motorists, and seat belt violators will be subject to a $114 non-moving violation

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of fatal injury to front seat passengers by 45 percent and the risk of moderate to serious injury by 50 percent. In 2012 seat belts saved the lives of 12,174 drivers and passengers, the NHTSA said.
