“CLICK IT OR TICKET” ENFORCEMENT

May 21, 2018

“ Click It or Ticket” increased-enforcement effort runs May 22nd – June 3rd.

El Paso, TX – During the last two weeks of May the El Paso County Sheriff’s Office will be stepping up their enforcement of the state’s seat belt laws from May 21 to June 3, including the Memorial Day weekend.  Texas law requires everyone in a vehicle to be properly buckled up or face fines and court costs up to $200. Children younger than 8 must be in a child safety seat or booster seat unless they’re taller than 4 feet 9 inches. Even if occupants are not properly restrained, the driver faces fines of up to $250, plus court costs. 

When the “Click It or Ticket” campaign launched in 2002, only 76 percent of Texans used their seat belts now seat belt use in Texas has increased, to nearly 92 percent in 2017.  Unfortunately, 929 unbuckled Texans still died in traffic crashes last year. TxDOT’s “Click It or Ticket” campaign reminds drivers and passengers that wearing a seat belt is the single most effective step they can take to protect themselves in a crash. Wearing a seat belt reduces the risk of dying in a crash by 45 percent. That number jumps to 60 percent for pickup trucks.  While daytime seat belt usage continues to increase, nighttime use remains lower, leading to a higher rate of fatalities. Last year, the Texas A&M Transportation Institute found the number of drivers and front seat passengers observed in 18 cities not wearing seat belts increased by almost 50 percent from day to night.

In 2017, 57 percent of all crashes where occupants died and weren’t wearing a seat belt happened at night (between 6 p.m. and 5:59 a.m.).  According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the “Click It or Ticket” initiative in Texas is estimated to have saved 5,473 lives, prevented more than 95,500 serious injuries and saved more than $20.7 billion in related economic costs from 2002 through 2017.

NATIONAL PRESCRIPTION TAKE BACK DAY

April 24, 2018

El Paso, TX – On Saturday, April 28, 2018, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Drug Enforcement Administration will give the public its 15th opportunity in 7 years to prevent pill abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs.  Bring your pills for disposal to https://takebackday.dea.gov/.  (The DEA cannot accept liquids or needles or sharps, only pills or patches.)  The service is free and anonymous, no questions asked.

The Sheriff’s Office Patrol Bureau is partnering with DEA on this initiative by opening the three Patrol Stations from 10 am to 2 pm for the public to drop off their unwanted medication.

· East Montana Patrol Station – 12501 Montana Ave.

· Clint Patrol Station – 190 San Elizario Rd.

· Northwest Patrol Station – 435 E. Vinton Rd, Suite D.

Last fall Americans turned in 456 tons (912,000 pounds) of prescription drugs at more than 5,300 sites operated by the DEA and almost 4,300 of its state and local law enforcement partners.  Overall, in its 14 previous Take Back events, DEA and its partners have taken in more than 9 million pounds—more than 4,500 tons—of pills. 

This initiative addresses a vital public safety and public health issue.  Medicines that languish in home cabinets are highly susceptible to diversion, misuse, and abuse. Rates of prescription drug abuse in the U.S. are alarmingly high, as are the number of accidental poisonings and overdoses due to these drugs.  The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s National Survey on Drug Use and Health shows year after year that the majority of misused and abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends, including someone else’s medication being stolen from the home medicine cabinet. In addition, Americans are now advised that their usual methods for disposing of unused medicines—flushing them down the toilet or throwing them in the trash—both pose potential safety and health hazards.
