'Click It or Ticket' Seat Belt Enforcement Begins
With the summer travel season almost upon us, police departments throughout the area are stepping up efforts to ensure traffic safety.
PennDOT and local law enforcement agencies are participating in the “Click It or Ticket” campaign
Starting Monday, police will be using traffic enforcement zones and roving patrols throughout the area, to target seat belt and child passenger seat violations.
State police say a $10.00 citation will be issued to drivers who are caught unbuckled, and a $75.00 fine will be given to drivers with an unrestrained child.
"Obviously, the seat belts help save lives,” said Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Cindy Owens. “Child seats help save lives as well, so, we want to make sure everyone is properly fastened into the vehicles.”
The campaign runs through June 3.
