      The Lakeland Police Department will join with departments across the state in the Click It or Ticket Enforcement Campaign. The enforcement runs from May 16th, 2016 thru May 30th, 2016 at midnight. Officers from the Lakeland Police Department will be monitoring our roadways for safety belt usage and issuing citations during this campaign and citations for failure to wear your seat belt. The fine is $114 .00. It only takes two (2) seconds to “click” your seat/safety. Florida State Statute 316.614 specifically addresses seat belt usage and the following information is being provided /disseminated in advance of the event to educate the public on seat/safety belt usage.
