Fairfield Police Begin 'Click It or Ticket' Campaign

Between May 19 and June 1, there will be high visibility seatbelt enforcerment

The annual 'Click It or Ticket' campaign is in full effect with Fairfield Police joining Connecticut's other law enforcement agencies in order to remind drivers about the importance of wearing seatbelts for the protection of the drivers themselves as well as other motorists.

The campaign is going on both day and night and statistics show that using a seatbelt can reduce the risk of serious injury or death in a motor vehicle accident by at least fifty percent.

The official slogan for the campaign is: "No Excuses. Buckle Up... It's the Law. It's Enforced."

I agree with the cell phone comment. Disregard for ones self is a personal issue, but disregard for others safety is another matter entirely.

Stand on any corner of the Post Road between No. Benson and Round Hill Rd.and you'll easily see 1/3 of drivers talking on cell phone or texting or using it as a one hand navigation device. During rush hours it can be 2/3.

Technology can be our best friend, and technology can also be the biggest party pooper of our lives. It interrupts our own story, interrupts our ability to have a thought or a daydream, to imagine something wonderful, because we're too busy bridging the walk from the cafeteria back to the office on the cell phone.

Yeah Chuck while you're busy looking around, see if you can find a cop.

I appreciate the government protecting me from myself.
