Cars purr for kitties

The Twin Ports Mustang & Ford Club has teamed up with Superior’s Animals’ Voices and the Humane Society of Douglas County for its 14th annual All Ford-Powered Car Show in an effort to raise money for the new animal shelter to be built in Superior.

The car show will be held at the Belknap Plaza, 130 Belknap St. and will run from 1-4 p.m. on Sunday, which is Father’s Day. There will be many family-friendly activities going on.

The car show is open to all Ford-powered vehicles. First place plaques will be awarded in 14 different classes. Second places also will be awarded a prize. A plaque will be awarded for the Best of Show vehicle. People entering vehicles will receive goodie bags and are eligible for door prizes.

All monetary donations will go to Superior’s new animal shelter.

Ten thousand little paper reminders

The Click It or Ticket seat belt and car seat enforcement campaign that ran the last two weeks of May has resulted in 10,874 seat belt citations, according to the Minnesota Department of Public Safety Office of Traffic Safety.

“These numbers indicate far too many people are risking their lives and the lives of the people riding with them,” said OTS director Donna Berger, in a statement. “The Click It or Ticket enforcement and education campaign reminds motorists that buckling up not only is the law, it’s your best defense in case of a crash.”

Campaign results were reported by 329 agencies and included 279 child seat citations.

A similar campaign in May 2013 cited 10,342 motorists.

Eh? guesses the good news is, there are 10,000 reminders out there to use seat belts. The bad news? Well, who really likes getting a ticket?
