greenville PD 2015GREENVILLE, Ky. (5/20/18) — As summer kicks off and families hit the road for vacations, Greenville Police Department is reminding motorists about “Click It or Ticket”.

Aimed at enforcing seat belt use to help keep you and your family safe, the national seat belt campaign will take place May 21 through June 3, concurrent with one of the busiest travel and holiday weekends of the year.

“Our law enforcement personnel see firsthand the loss of life when people refuse to buckle up,” said Chief Darren Harvey. “It’s such a simple thing, and it should be an automatic next step after sitting down in a vehicle.”

As the Memorial Day weekend approaches and the summer vacation season ramps up, “We want to keep our community members safe, and make sure people are doing the one thing that can save them in a crash: buckling up,” Harvey said. “If the enforcement crackdown wakes people up to the dangers of unrestrained driving and gets them to buckle up, we’ll consider it a success.”

Greenville Police Department will be conducting traffic safety checkpoints in various locations throughout the city during the upcoming holiday.  Officers will be observing for impaired drivers along with other traffic violations.  These traffic safety checkpoints are part of the department's traffic enforcement campaign aimed at reducing the amount of injury collisions in the city.  As a reminder, citizens are encouraged to obey all traffic laws, wear seat belts, and properly restrain all children in booster seats and child restraints.  These checkpoints will be conducted at one of the following pre-approved locations:
