GAINESVILLE, Fla. — The University of Florida Police Department is joining other law enforcement agencies across the state in a “Click It or Ticket” campaign starting Friday through March 16.

During the campaign, state and local law officers will show zero tolerance for motorists who fail to use their safety belts. Not wearing a safety belt is a primary traffic violation meaning if you are stopped, you will likely receive a ticket.

“Click It or Ticket” is a cooperative effort of the Florida Department of Transportation, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and law enforcement agencies across the state.

Also during most of this period, a St. Patrick’s Day Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, Wave Saturation campaign will be conducted March 10-17.
