Attorney General’s office suggests removal of “Click it or Ticket” PSA

At the request of the Attorney General’s office, PoliticsNJ.com has removed an advertisement publicizing the Department of Law and Public Safety’s “Click it or Ticket” campaign. In an e-mail sent to this website earlier this afternoon, David Wald, a spokesman for Zulima Farber, said: “Please take down the click-it-or-ticket link You know no one here ever asked for or authorized the link. Thanks.” PoliticsNJ.com had run this ad at no charge as a public service announcement. This website acknowledges not being asked to do so by the Attorney General’s office, and we apologize for any embarrassment our publicizing of the Click it or Ticket campaign may have caused the Attorney General. Editor’s Note: According to the Attorney General’s Office, the state spent $272,000 on radio, billboard and bus advertising for the Click it or Ticket in 2005 — paid for by a federal grant. There was no advertising budget for this campaign in 2006; radio ads were paid for by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
