“The goal of the ‘Click It or Ticket’ 3-on-3 Tournament was to increase awareness of the seat belt law requiring youths and teens in the front and back seats to be belted,” said Sergeant Randy Apele of the Traffic Section. “We definitely increased awareness and received pledges from the youths and teens that they will use their seat belts. Ultimately it’s about reducing injuries and saving lives.”
