Beginning May 24th and running through June 6th, the Liberal Police Department will be participating in the Kansas Click It or Ticket traffic enforcement campaign. This activity is supported by a grant from the Kansas Department of Transportation (KDOT).
Across Kansas, over 140 law enforcement agencies, including the Kansas Highway Patrol, will be participating in Click It or Ticket. The aim is to drastically reduce the number of preventable deaths and injuries that occur when unbelted drivers and passengers are involved in traffic crashes. According to KDOT’s Traffic Safety section, Kansas traffic crashes last year claimed the lives of 386 people. Tragically, of those who died, 69 percent were not belted in. By contrast, 89 percent of those not even injured were belted in.
