The Evanston Police Department will participate in the national “Click it or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign this month –- with a new emphasis on nighttime enforcement.

Police Commander Tom Guenther says more drivers at night than during the day think “it will never happen to me,” but the risk of a fatal crash actually goes up significantly at night.

Guenther says wearing your seat belt costs you nothing, but not wearing it can cost you a ticket.
