Sergeant Randy Apele of the Traffic Services Section proclaimed the tournament a “huge success” and noted that free ice cream was given to 400 youths observed wearing their seat belts; booster seats were given to qualifying families by the Keiki Injury Prevention Coalition; and a child seat checkpoint resulted in the inspection of dozens of car seats.

“Click It or Ticket has become a well-known phrase” said Sergeant Apele. “As the commercials say, officers don’t want to issue citations but they will to save lives. Wearing your seat belt will help prevent serious injury or death and will save you from getting a $77 fine”.
