Thanksgiving is the time of year were we are excited to travel to be with family and friends. Travel may look a little different this year but remembering to use your seatbelt shouldn’t. If you are traveling down the block or across the country, make sure you buckle up every time. Click It or Ticket isn’t about citations; it’s about saving lives.

 

Face the Facts

  • The national seat belt use rate in 2019 was 90.7 percent, which is good—but we can do better. The other 9.3 percent still need to be reminded that seat belts save lives.
  • Unbelted rear passengers are 2.7 times more likely to be killed than belted rear passengers.Men make up the majority of those killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes. In 2018, 65 percent of the 22,697 passenger vehicle occupants who were killed were men. Men also wear their seat belts at a lower rate than women do—52 percent of men killed in crashes were unrestrained, compared to 39 percent of women killed in crashes.
  • Iowa has a seat belt usage rate of 95.2 percent. Great Job Iowa but let’s get to 100 percent.  

This annual campaign is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s national Click It or Ticket high-visibility enforcement effort that runs from November 16-29, 2020. Aimed at enforcing seat belt use to help keep people safe, the national seat belt campaign runs concurrent with this busy travel season.

August 15, 2020

Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer and we celebrate with barbecues and road trips. But be aware as you hit the highways that the Labor Day holiday weekend is one of the deadliest times of the year in terms of drunk-driving fatalities.  During the 2018 Labor Day holiday period (August 31 – September 4), there were 439 traffic fatalities nationwide.  Forty-three percent of those fatalities involved drivers who had been drinking and more than one-third (38%) of the fatalities involved drivers who were over the legal limit.  Ultimately, drinking and driving is a choice, and it is a choice that puts all road users at risk. 

It is imperative that we all do our part to end drunk and drugged driving.  Remember that it is never okay to
drink/drug and drive.  Even if you plan to have only one alcoholic beverage, designate a sober driver or use
a ride serve to get home safely.  If you see a drunk driver on the road, contact your local law enforcement. 
Do you have a friend who is about to drink and drive?  Take the keys away and make arrangements to get
your friend home safely.  These are small tasks that can make a BIG difference to save lives. 
 

Last year, in Iowa, there were six fatalities over the three-day Labor Day weekend.  Three of these fatalities
involved a drunk driver. To help keep people safe on our roadways and put an end to drunk driving, extra
law enforcement will be out, both locally and nationally, in support of the 2020 Drive Sober or Get Pulled
Over
campaign.  From August 21 through September 7, 2020, officers will be out there keeping our roads
safe by removing impaired drivers and addressing other serious traffic violations.

As of August 10, 2020 Fremont County has had three fatality accidents compared to two in Mills, one
in Montgomery and three in Page County. Fremont County has also had sixty-seven total accidents so far in 2020.  

       The Iowa Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau reminds you:
                                                   Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.

          DRINKING GREEN BEER?  CALL A DESIGNATED DRIVER! 

If you are heading out to a St. Patrick’s Day celebration this year, make sure you have more than just the luck o’ the Irish on your side. This holiday, March 17, 2020, is one of the biggest drinking nights of the year and this, unfortunately, means more impaired drivers on the roads.  Drunk driving accounts for nearly one-third of vehicle related fatalities in the United States.  Nationally, in 2018 alone, 73 people (39% of all crash fatalities) were killed in drunk-driving crashes over the St. Patrick’s Day holiday period and 33% of the pedestrians aged
16 and older killed in crashes had a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) at or above .08.  In 2019 in Iowa, there were two crashes over the
holiday which killed four people.
   

To combat the increased impaired driving around the holiday local law agencies will be stepping up traffic enforcement March 14 – 17, 2020. Officers will especially be watching for drunk and drugged drivers and anyone not wearing seat belts.   

Drinking and driving should never be combined.  It’s essential to plan a sober ride in advance if the holiday celebration will include alcohol. The alternative could change your life, not to mention the lives of your passengers, pedestrians, or other drivers and passengers nearby. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day responsibly!   

The Iowa Department of Public Safety and the Governor’s Traffic Safety Bureau remind you, driving while impaired is illegal! 

 If you feel different, you drive different!
