MEMORIAL DAY CLICK IT OR TICKET
MAY 20 - JUNE 2
From May 20th until June 2nd Clute PD will participate in the state-wide Click It or Ticket campaign.
Seat belts save lives - the primary reason to buckle up,
but during this period we have a zero-tolerance policy and violators will be ticketed.
Since the "Click It or Ticket" campaign began in 2002, Texas seat belt usage has climbed from 76.1 percent to 93.8 percent. Experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimate that this increase has resulted in 2,843 fewer traffic fatalities and 48,000 fewer serious injuries in Texas in the last 10 years.
Despite these gains just under half of the 3,089 people who died in Texas traffic crashes in 2009 were not properly buckled up, and traffic crashes remain the leading cause of death for people between 1 and 4 years of age.
The mission of the Clute Police Department is to provide professional, courteous law enforcement and public safety while enhancing the quality of life by a commitment to police services with integrity and dedication, which focus on the reduction of fear and preserving human life through goals, objectives, values and partnerships with the community.
