Media Room

Earned media is an important piece of the Click It or Ticket puzzle. Earned media is free traffic safety outreach that complements high visibility safety belt enforcement and paid media. It raises the public’s awareness of the importance of buckling up and reminds unbuckled motorists of the likelihood of getting a ticket. In our media room, you will find recent press releases, a photo gallery, public service announcements (PSAs), etc.


To join the earned media campaign and increase safety belt usage in your community, please visit Get Involved Illinois.
