Increased Click It or Ticket enforcement

Traffic Safety Pulse News

Starting April 3, CDOT, the Colorado State Patrol (CSP) and 27 local law enforcement agencies throughout Colorado began the first seat belt enforcement period of 2023. The Click It or Ticket enforcement runs through April 19. 

To bring awareness to the importance of buckling up, CDOT is installing seat belt messages on chain-link fences in Denver and Weld counties. The first installation of “Buckle Up” is on a fence along West Dartmouth Avenue at John F. Kennedy High School in Denver. A fence installation is also underway in Weld County where seat belt use rates are among the lowest in the state.

During the 2022 Click It or Ticket April enforcement period, 969 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants were issued citations statewide. Of these occupants, 10 were unrestrained children.
