Click It or Ticket 2023

The Highland Beach Police Department would like to remind all residents that wearing a seatbelt is the law. From May 22nd through June 4th, the Police Department will be featuring the Click It or Ticket campaign, which focuses on seat belt safety and enforcement.

Seat belts have been proven to be one of the best ways to save your life in a crash. yet many still don't buckle up. Worse still, not wearing a seat belt is a habit that will pass on to impressionable youth who, in turn, will think it is safe to not buckle up. The Click It or Ticket campaign focuses on safety education, strong laws, and law enforcement support to save lives.
