We have all heard the slogan of the traffic safety campaign “Click It or Ticket.” Here in Coushatta those who have not heeded that advice may have been issued a citation.
The Coushatta Police Department is participating in a nationwide effort to get motorists to buckle-up. It is happening now because the long Memorial Day weekend is approaching and so are the hot summer driving months.
Coushatta Police Chief Kevin Stafford said his officers are out in force every day. You may have observed the blue lights flashing and motorists pulled over.
Law enforcement agencies across Louisiana and the nation are cracking down on drivers and passengers who are not securely buckled in their seats. So be safe on the roads and buckle up. Otherwise it could be costly.
