Enforce belt laws. Educate occupants. Increase belt use.
That’s all it takes to Save a Life

The “Click It or Ticket Campaign for 2014” emphasizes the importance the partnership between Enforcement and Education with a continued target on night time seat belt use. This multi-agency approach has two goals – to save lives by buckling seat belts and child restraints on every ride and to improve the safe driving practices of all Marylanders. We are requesting your department’s help to get out the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) campaign “Click it Or Ticket - Day and Night.”

We are asking every EMS, Fire, and Rescue Company to display the BUCKLE UP banners from Monday May 12, 2014 through Sunday June 1, 2014, as part of the Maryland educational campaign. The high profile enforcement mobilization is May 19th through June 1st, but the goal is not to write more tickets – the goal is “Chose Safety for Life.”

For those that have electronic signs, please display the following message:

“Buckle Up Maryland – Day & Night. It is the Law”

Seat belts are the most effective safety feature ever invented and have helped save thousands of lives. Sadly, one in five Americans fail to regularly wear a seat belt when driving or riding in a motor vehicle. By maintaining the "Click It or Ticket" awareness, we will continue to reduce seat belt fatalities on America's roads.
Forward information about the status of your department’s pledge and any pictures from your outdoor signs to MIEMSS Media at jbrown@miemss.org
Thank you for joining this important public safety campaign. We wish you a safe and happy spring and summer.
