Gulfport PD kicking off Click it or Ticket campaign
As people prepare to hit the roads this holiday season, the Gulfport Police Department is asking everyone to remember one simple step that can save lives.
Thanksgiving is one of the busiest travel seasons on America’s roads and that increases the likelihood for vehicle accidents. That’s why Gulfport police are rolling out the Click it or Ticket campaign once again.
Along with increased patrols in the follow-up to Thanksgiving Day, officials are asking that you and your passengers take the time to make sure your seatbelts are properly secured before you begin your journey. Gulfport PD Public Information Officer Jason Ducre said, “This is more so to remind everybody to buckle up when they’re traveling whether it’s ten minutes, ten miles, or ten hours, buckle up. It could save your life.”
Police officials also say now is a good time to make sure your child is in the correct car seat as well.
