To prevent deaths and injuries, the Vernon County Sheriff’s Office in Viroqua, along with law enforcement agencies from around Wisconsin will intensify safety belt enforcement efforts during April.
“Click It or Ticket is more than just a slogan for us—it’s a lifesaving strategy,” Sheriff John Spears said in a press release March 30. “We don’t want to stop and ticket drivers or passengers for not wearing a safety belt. But we also never want to tell families that their son, daughter, parent or other loved one was ejected from a vehicle or tossed around violently inside it during a crash because they did not buckle up.
“Buckling up is quick, easy, and a proven lifesaver.”
