Hazelwood Police Participate in ‘Click It Or Ticket’

Hazelwood Joins ‘Click It Or Ticket’ Campaign

The Hazelwood Police Department will participate with other law enforcement agencies in an aggressive “Click It or Ticket” campaign May 18 to May 31 to crack down on seat belt violators. Seat belt use is the single most effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. However, Missouri’s 79 percent seat belt usage rate is consistently below the national average of 87 percent despite advances in auto safety and education about wearing seat belts. Six of 10 people in Missouri who are involved in traffic accidents are found unbuckled at the scene. Teens and pick-up truck drivers are among those least likely to buckle up, at 67 and 63 percent, respectively.

Hazelwood adds ornamental fencing to McDonnell Blvd Bridge over I-270

To present an aesthetically pleasing and positive image to motorists passing through daily, Hazelwood has hired Raineri Construction to begin work on the McDonnell Boulevard bridge project over I-270. The project is due for completion July 16. Eighty percent of the $414,964 project will be funded by a federal grant administered through MoDOT, with just $82,993 coming from the city’s economic development fund.
