The annual Click It or Ticket mobilization may be over in Carbondale, IL, but that is no excuse to stop using your seat belt.  “Our officers are out all year long.  If you or your passengers are caught not wearing a seat belt, day or night, you will be cited for the safety violation,” says Police Chief, Jody O’Guinn.

Contact: Sgt. Amber Ronketto, 618-457-3200 ext.465,
