Sheridan Law Officers Say 'Click It or Ticket'

With the Memorial Day holiday approaching, Sheridan County law enforcement has issued a reminder to all drivers to use their seat belts.

The annual “Click It or Ticket” high-visibility enforcement effort started Monday and runs through June 2. The focus is enforcement of seat belt use.

Lt. Travis Koltiska of the Sheridan Police Department, said city and county law enforcement will be especially active during the approaching Memorial Day weekend to target those who aren't buckling up.

Koltiska said all law enforcement is working to get the “Click It or Ticket” message out to the public. He said a seat belt is the best protection in event of a crash, and in Wyoming, it's the law.

Koltiska said from 2013 to 2017 in Sheridan County, nine people who weren't buckled up died in vehicle crashes. Nationally in 2017, over 10,000 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants were killed in crashes nationwide.

Koltiska urged county citizens to help spread the message and ask anyone they know who doesn't buckle up to change their ways.
