Click It or Ticket Thanksgiving Holiday

With Thanksgiving coming upon us, the Gainesville Police Department would like to take the opportunity to remind drivers to travel at a safe speed, always wear seatbelts, utilize child safety seats and always use a designated driver anytime there maybe a potential for consuming alcoholic beverages while attending events.


Starting November 18th through December 1st, the Gainesville Police Department, along with agencies across the country, will begin the campaign of Click It or Ticket.  Click It or Ticket seeks to reduce the number of injured occupants during crashes in motor vehicles, to include pickup trucks, on our roadways.  This is to include child passengers.    As a reminder, Gainesville Police will check child safety seats for recalls, proper installation and fit for a child on Tuesdays from 9-11 am at the Gainesville Justice Center.


To increase your chances of having a safe Thanksgiving holiday while traveling, remember to watch your speed, wear your seatbelt, and use a designated driver.
