In 2011, of the 21,253 vehicle occupants who were killed in motor vehicle crashes nationwide, 52 percent were NOT wearing seat belts at the time of the crash.

That’s why Gulfport Police Department is joining state and local law enforcement agencies and highway safety groups in supporting an aggressive national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign from May 20th through June 2nd.  Police will be ticketing unbelted vehicle occupants around the clock—night and day.

Wearing your seat belt costs you nothing, but not wearing it will.  So unless you want to risk a ticket, or worse, your life, please remember to buckle up!
