Many Police Dept. encourages you to buckle up and save a life

The Many Police Department recently received a Special Wave Enforcement grant from the Louisiana Highway Safety Commission to partner with the state in its annual Click it or Ticket program. Beginning Mary 24, 2021 and continuing through the Memorial Day holiday, the Town of Many Police Depart ment will be checking to make sure everyone is properly secured in their vehicles, drivers and passengers alike. Extra patrols will be on duty to ensure that our town’s citizens are safe as they travel on city streets and roads throughout town.

One of the safest choices drivers and passengers can make is to buckle up EVERY TIME they get into a vehicle. Many Americans understand the lifesaving values of the seat belt as the national use rate was 90.7% in 2019. Seat belt use in passenger vehicles saved an estimated 14,955 lives in 2018. In contrast, of the 22,215 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2019, 47% were not wearing seat belts.
