Click It or Ticket Enforcement Ends Carbondale Police Department Continues to Hand Out Tickets for Seat Belt Violations Year-Round

Click It or Ticket Enforcement Ends Carbondale Police Department

Continues To Hand Out Tickets for Seat Belt Violations Year-Round


Who:               Illinois Department of Transportation (IDOT) and the Carbondale Police Department


What:              From May 9-26, 2014, IDOT supported law enforcement agencies statewide to remind motorists to buckle up both day and night during the Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization.  The Carbondale Police Department joined other state and local law enforcement agencies across Illinois in this annual effort to get more motorists to buckle up, in the front and back seat - and save more lives.

During the mobilization, the Carbondale Police Department:

issued 2 seat belt citations

issued 1 child seat safety citation

made 2 DUI arrests

issued 2 uninsured motorist citations

issued 1 speeding citation


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

For more information on the Illinois Click It or Ticket mobilizations at the Carbondale Police Department, please contact Lt. Heather Reno at 457-3200 ext.427 or visit
