"Over the past several years,
the Perry Police Department
(PDP) has participated in the
statewide Click It of Ticket
enforcing seatbelt laws," PPD
Capt. Jamie Cruce said.
"We anticipate our
enforcement efforts will
continue under the new law."
Cruce said that in the past,
when conducting driver
surveys prior to enforcement
waves, local seatbelt use by
drivers was only 55 percent.
According to a 2008
NHTSA study, states with
primary enforcement laws rank
in the top five for safety belt
usage while Florida ranks 35th
in the nation.
Florida law requires all front
seat passengers to be buckled,
and any passenger under 18
must wear a seatbelt regardless
of where he is sitting in
the vehicle. Children
ages three and under must be
in a federally approved
child restraint device, while
children ages three and four
must be in a seatbelt, separate
carrier or integrated child
Drivers are reminded that
they are responsible for the
safety of their passengers
under the age of 18 and may be
cited for each seatbelt
"We are committed to
educating motorists and
modifying driver behavior to
ensure that they buckle up,"
said Florida Highway Patrol

At Yates Creek
joins boat ramp debate
This question of ownership of
the Yates Creek road and boat
ramp has come around again,
and the answer is still the same.
The county and the public own
First, in talking with one
commissioner before my time
as commissioner, the county
already had maintained the road
and ramp 12 plus years.
After I was elected in that
same district three, we (county)
continued to maintain the road
and ramp. In 1983, we (county)
applied for a maintenance
permit from the state. After
receiving the permit, we moved
the county dragline to Yates
Creek boat ramp. We installed
silt screens according to the
permit and began digging.
When the digging was
complete, launching a boat was
a pleasure one fisherman said.
There was plenty of water even
on low tide.
When the Storm of the
Century came, the Yates Creek
Road was destroyed.
Myself and other witnesses
observed the county dump truck
and other equipment at work
rebuilding Yates Creek Road,
approximately two weeks plus.
It is plain to see: the citizens
of Taylor County have a "vested
interest" in this road and ramp.
Some time within the last
one and a half years, someone
burned the only bridge starting to
the boat ramp. Then the county
replaced the bridge and pipes.
Now some property owners
in that area say the road and
ramp is theirs after thousands
of tax dollars have been spent
there for the public to use. Also,
there could have been some
FEMA money (federal) used
in this road rebuilding, I'm not
I say to these people claiming
ownership, "hogwash." The
public owns it.
I say to the board of county
commissioners, canry them to
