Danbury Police Warn Drivers to Buckle Up Over Thanksgiving
Not wearing one could cost you $92.
The Danbury Police Department wants you to be aware of their upcoming life-saving campaign. This special campaign called "Click It or Ticket" will target the Danbury driver over Thanksgiving weekend. It's very simple. Buckle your seatbelt or you may get pulled over and issued a ticket for not wearing one which could end up costing you $92.
According to a press release, the reason why the Danbury PD is being more vigilant about the seatbelt law is that Thanksgiving is one of the most heavily traveled holidays of the year, and they would like to help keep you alive through the holidays.
According to stats from the state Department of Transportation from 2011 to 2015, close to 64,000 were saved due to having their seatbelts on. Do your friends and family a favor and buckle up.
