Special tickets given to students who buckle up

By  | 

Anderson County students were met by law enforcement officers at school Wednesday morning, but it turned out to be a good thing for those who were buckled up.

The national 'Click it or Ticket' campaign kicks off wednesday and the Anderson county Sheriff's Department used it as a way to reach out to their teen drivers.

They gave out tickets to students who were buckled up. Those tickets were redeemable for a free t-shirt. Students who weren't buckled up got off with a warning and literature about seatbelt safety, instead of the usual $25 fine.

But, students who aren't buckled when they leave school won't be as lucky. Sheriff Troy Young says he will cite students because buckling up is the law.
