Local Click It Or Ticket patrols already showing results

May 31, 2013

Click It Or Ticket patrols in Grays Harbor are underway and issued over 150 violations in their first weekend alone.

In numbers from Grays Harbor Target Zero, in 2 separate emphasis patrols in Montesano and Aberdeen last weekend saw 60 drivers with no insurance, 45 using their cell phones while driving, 24 seatbelt violations, 2 drug arrests, and a felony warrant.

Last year, during this time period, officers statewide issued 3,171 seat belt violations amongst the 11,047 motorists who were stopped, and 1,059 cell phone violations were written.

In 2010, the same year cell phone use became a primary law in Washington; only 63 drivers were cited statewide.

These and all extra local patrols are part of Grays Harbor Target Zero whose goal is to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030.

Extra patrols will continue through this weekend in Grays Harbor looking for unbuckled or distracted drivers.
