Danbury Police launch 'Click it or Ticket' enforcement campaign

The Danbury Police Department will be conducting a Click It or Ticket Campaign beginning today.  The increased enforcement will take place through the 28th.  The Danbury Police Department has increased up patrolling and will be on the lookout for seat belt violations. 


The Thanksgiving holiday is one of the busiest travel times of the year, and more vehicles on the roadways means more potential for more crashes and more fatalities.  Danbury Police spokesman Lt Christian Carroccio says wearing a seat belt is the single most effective way to save your life and the lives of others on the roads while traveling this Thanksgiving. 



AAA expects more than 2.1 million New Englanders, a 2.4% increase, will travel this Thanksgiving.  AAA Northeast says that's due in part to stable gas prices.  The statewide average for a gallon of gas is $2.31, a nickel more than last Thanksgiving.  In 2008, Thanksgiving Day prices were around $2.03.
