Press Release - Click It or Ticket Campaign

Below is a press release from Milton Police Lieutenant John Conger about their participation in the "Click It or Ticket" campaign.

The City of Milton Police Department will be participating in the upcoming statewide “Click it or Ticket” campaign which takes place between May 20th and June 2nd. During that time our officers will be making traffic stops for a variety of violations, but they will be putting extra emphasis on enforcing Wisconsin’s safety belt laws. 

Traffic crashes are the leading cause of death for teens and young adults nationwide. 

In Wisconsin, in 2011, 336 drivers and passengers were killed in traffic crashes. Over half of those victims were not wearing their safety belts. Furthermore, safety belt usage is the most effective way to prevent being ejected from a vehicle during a crash.
