Click it or Ticket starts May 21
Submitted By Sgt. Jonathon Arguello, Newark PD
The Newark Police Department, in conjunction with the California Office of Traffic Safety will be looking for drivers and passengers who don't buckle up during the "Click it or Ticket" seat belt enforcement campaign. The "Click it or Ticket" mobilization runs from May 21st - June 3rd and is aimed at getting 100% of California drivers and passengers to wear seat belts.
The "Click it or Ticket" debuted in California in 2005, and since then the state's seat belt use rate has increased from 92.5 percent to a record high of 96.2 percent, representing 1.25 million more vehicle occupants who have buckled up. Minimum ticket cost of an adult seat belt violation in California is $142 and up; a minimum $445 for not properly restraining a child under 16 years of age.
Save lives and buckle up!
