Police to participate in ‘Click It or Ticket’ effort
LEWISTOWN — The Mifflin County Regional Police Department will participate in the “Click It or Ticket” Thanksgiving enforcement mobilization effort. This enforcement will begin on Nov. 25 and conclude on Dec. 8. Regional Officers will concentrate on roadways throughout Derry, Brown and Union townships, as well as Burnham Borough, in which PennDot crash data shows a high number of motor vehicle accidents, and motor vehicle accidents in which there are documented unbelted occupants.
Unbelted crashes are shown to be significant contributors to traffic injuries and deaths, especially during the nighttime hours.
Regional Police receive funding for this program from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Association.
