Oklahoma Highway Safety Office Observes National “Click It or Ticket” Campaign

By Car Accident Help on May 25, 2011

The “Click It or Ticket” campaign is a national effort to prevent car accident injuries and fatalities by encouraging drivers and passengers to “buckle-up.” Oklahoma, as well as many other states in the U.S. are increasing seat belt enforcement efforts during the campaign, which began on May 23 and ends on June 5.

According to SandSpringsLeader.com, officers from across northeastern Oklahoma will be focusing on citing motorists who are not wearing seat belts. Funding from the Oklahoma Highway Safety Office (OHSO) is providing for extra patrols and checkpoints, as well as overtime shifts. If a motorist is cited for not wearing their seat belt, they will have to pay $20, for each citation. Both drivers and passengers can be ticketed for not wearing their seat belt.

Violating Oklahoma’s safety belt law is considered a primary law, which means that a law enforcement officer can stop and issue a citation to a driver solely for not wearing their seat belt. Under the law, all drivers and front seat passengers must have a properly fastened seat belt at all times while the motor vehicle is in motion. Passengers that are 12-years-old or younger must always wear a safety belt or be in a proper child seat, regardless of where they sit in the car.

The goal of this campaign is to help prevent Oklahoma auto accident injuries and fatalities by reminding Oklahomans to wear their seat belt every time they are in a vehicle. Making sure to wear a seat belt is the responsibility of every driver and passenger, but it is not always enough to prevent injury in a car crash.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident in Oklahoma caused by the careless or negligent actions of another driver, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your losses. The skilled Oklahoma City car crash lawyers at Maples Law Firm, LLP, can help you hold at-fault parties accountable for the injuries you have suffered.
