Law Enforcement to Distribute Money to Buckled Drivers

Prince George’s County, Maryland…These days, who couldn’t use an extra buck?
Your chance to earn a buck starts Wednesday, May 31, 2012, at 900 Capital Centre Boulevard, Largo, Maryland.

As a part of the National Click It or Ticket campaign, the Prince George’s Community Federal Credit Union, which has donated the cash, is joining the Maryland State Highway Administration’s Highway Safety Office and the Prince George’s County Police Department in this year’s Buckle Up for A Buck program.  Law enforcement officers and safety advocates will distribute $1 bills to drivers who have all occupants buckled up securely in their vehicles.  Those riding unrestrained will receive educational materials about the effectiveness of seat belts and child safety seats in saving lives and reducing injuries.
