General News: Click It or Ticket Campaign

May 22, 2019

During the period of May 20, 2019 thru June 02, 2019, Cornwall-on-Hudson Police Department will be participating in the 2019’ Governor’s Traffic Traffic Committees’, “Click it or Ticket” Enforcement Mobilization.

Of the 37,133 people killed in motor vehicle crashes in 2017, 47% were not wearing seat belts. In 2017 alone, seat belts saved an estimated 14,955 lives and could have saved an additional 2,549 people if they had been wearing seat belts. 
The consequences of not wearing, or improperly wearing, a seatbelt are clear:
1. Buckling up helps keep you safe and secure inside your vehicle, whereas not buckling up can result in being totally ejected from the vehicle in a crash, which is almost always deadly. 
2. Air bags are not enough to protect you; in fact, the force of an air bag can seriously injure or even kill you if you’re not buckled up.
3. Improperly wearing a seat belt, such as putting the strap below your arm, puts you and your children at risk in a crash.

Comments:

One of the many positive aspects of living in Cornwall is our police department. The police are respectful, polite, generally unseen, and seem to do their job well. To me, they appear to understand well the function of peace officers.

Now it seems like the police chief thinks this isn't good enough. It sounds like the police will become more "pro-active" aka, annoying, with a campaign to save Cornwall residents from themselves.

I guess nothing good lasts forever.
