  Union City High School junior Emery Whaley issued a fake citation to a classmate Friday morning during a “Click It And Ticket” seat belt campaign conducted as students arrived for class. Among those on hand to assist was Whaley’s father, school resource officer Raphe Whaley (background right). The effort was a partnership between State Farm, the Governor’s Highway Safety Office, the Union City Police Department and the Obion County Prevention Coalition. Students could exchange their citations at the school office to enter a drawing for $100, $50 or $10 Walmart gift cards. McGruff the Crime Prevention Dog was also on hand. The “Click It And Ticket” (CIAT) youth leadership project is a play on words of the usual slogan of “Click It Or Ticket” in that CIAT rewards students who arrive at school wearing seat belts with a citation of good behavior and gives students found not wearing seat belts a warning citation for a poor choice.
