Cabarrus picked for seat belt survey

Cabarrus County is one of nine counties selected by the Governor’s Highway Safety Program to participate in a “Click It or Ticket” mobilization April 18-29.
Law enforcement agencies within the county will perform stepped-up patrols and checkpoints in the area, cracking down on those not buckled up.
The “Click It or Ticket” campaign is aimed at increasing seat belt usage and child passenger safety through stepped-up enforcement of the state’s seat belt and child safety seat laws. This effort precedes the statewide “Click It or Ticket,” which will run May 23-June 5.
Cabarrus County was selected by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration as a seat belt survey county, which will help determine North Carolina’s overall seat belt usage rate. Survey county selection is based on population, demographic and time/day requirements. Surveyors will be in the area throughout the month of June tracking seat belt usage among Cabarrus motorists.
In 2010, NHTSA reported that North Carolina’s seat belt usage rate was 89.7 percent.
Other counties selected include: Caldwell, Catawba, Columbus, Franklin, Harnett, Johnston, Nash and Onslow.
