DRPA Targets Seat Belt Violators through “Click It or Ticket” Campaign

 Now through Sunday, June 5, the Delaware River Port Authority’s Public Safety Department will join other law enforcement agencies in the region to step up enforcement and education of New Jersey’s Primary Seat Belt Law.  The campaign, Click It or Ticket, is sponsored and funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and is part of New Jersey’s annual effort to increase seat belt use through a combination of heavy enforcement, advertising and public awareness campaigns.  Variable message signs at all four DRPA bridges will inform drivers of the Click it or Ticket campaign.

DRPA CEO, John J. Matheussen, says “the use of seat belts is one of the most effective means of reducing fatalities and serious injuries in traffic accidents.”

DRPA Police Chief, Dave McClintock, adds “the intent of the Click it or Ticket campaign is simple – to save lives and prevent injuries.

The Delaware River Port Authority is a regional transportation agency.  DRPA owns and operates the Benjamin Franklin, Walt Whitman, Commodore Barry and Betsy Ross Bridges, and PATCO.  The DRPA also owns the RiverLink Ferry.
