Click It or Ticket

Calumet City IL — Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start of summer, a
popular time for traveling to visit family and friends. Whether you are traveling down
the block or across the country, make sure you buckle up every time. Seat belts save
lives every day, but are only effective if they are used. While Illinois currently has a
93.5% seat belt use compliance rate, unbelted occupants still account for more than half
of those killed in motor vehicle crashes. “Seat belts have proven to be one of the best
ways to save your life in a crash,” said Chief Kevin Kolosh.

Officers in Calumet City will be stepping up enforcement for the Memorial Day “Click It
or Ticket” campaign. The campaign is focused on safety education and law enforcement
support to save lives. The “Click It or Ticket” campaign runs from May 13, 2022, until
May 31, 2022, and is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation with
federal highway safety funds.
