    The Click It or Ticket It PSA:

    Details:

    Seat belts have proven to be one of the best ways to save someone's life in a crash, yet many still don't buckle up. Prior to Monday, the start of the national Click It or Ticket campaign, Hillsborough County Sheriff Chad Chronister issued a public service announcement (PSA) warning drivers who do not buckle up behind the wheel that they could get a citation.

    "By wearing seat belts and buckling children into age and size appropriate car seats, you can reduce the risk of serious injury and death by half," said Sheriff Chronister in the video message shared on social media. "Although most drivers follow these safety measures, there are still millions who don't."

    Beginning Monday, May 20, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office will conduct intensive, high-visibility enforcement of seat belt laws throughout the county. The Click It or Ticket campaign runs from May 20 through June 2.

    "Putting on a seat belt will not only keep you from getting an expensive citations, but it could also save your life," added Sheriff Chronister.
