Buckle up and save a life! That’s what Merriam police officers want you to do during the annual statewide Click It or Ticket campaign.
Starting May 20, officers will look for drivers and passengers not properly buckled. They want to help reduce the number of preventable injuries and deaths. The Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT) said 1 in 8 children age 5 to 14 are not properly restrained.
The two-week campaign ends June 2 and is supported by a KDOT grant. Contact the Kansas Traffic Safety Resource Office at 800-416-2522 or email firstname.lastname@example.org any child safety restraint questions or the location of the nearest safety seat fitting station and technician.
