PROSPECT — The Prospect Resident Trooper’s Office will be looking extra hard for drivers not wearing their seat belts.

Prospect police are joining in on the Click It or Ticket Campaign from Nov. 14 thorough Nov. 27. Officers will be cracking down on drivers who aren’t wearing seat belts, a release issued by the office stated, and any driver found not wearing their seat belt can expect a ticket and not a warning.

Night-time enforcement will be a priority of the campaign, the release stated, because drivers and passengers are less likely to wear seat belts at night. The release stated 62 percent of people who died in night-time crashed were not wearing their seat belts.
