Round Lake Police Department Memorial Day ‘Click It or Ticket’ Results

Posted on Monday June 07, 2021
The Round Lake Police Department recently completed the Memorial Day “Click It or Ticket” enforcement period.

While Illinois’ 2020 seat belt compliance rate was 94.6%, unbelted occupants still account for over half of those killed in traffic crashes. The “Click It or Ticket” campaign aims to change the behavior of people who don’t buckle up.  

During the enforcement period, the Round Lake Police Department wrote 23 citations for seat belt violations and took the following additional actions:

            2   = DUI arrests

            1   = License violation

            1   = Drug arrest

            10 = Speeding

            4   = Distracted Driving

            10 = Uninsured motorist

            17 = other citations

The Illinois “Click It or Ticket” campaign is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with federal highway safety funds.
