Local Area Police to Participate in Seat-Belt Enforcement

May 19th, 2012 | By | Category: Police Briefs

The Town of New Windsor, Town of Chester and New York State Police today along with Eastern Pike Regional Police Department in PA announced seat-belt enforcement activities as part of a national Click It or Ticket seat-belt enforcement mobilization, from May 21 through June 10. The law enforcement activities will be conducted on area roads throughout the two week long campaign.

The enforcement, coupled with educational outreach efforts, will raise awareness of a law that went into effect in December. The primary law states all vehicle occupants under 18 must wear a seat belt. Drivers and front-seat passengers over 18 years old who are cited for another traffic violation will receive a second ticket if they’re unbuckled. During the mobilization, officers will be cracking down on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts and who fail to properly restrain their children as well.

Research numbers show,if 90 percent of Americans buckle up, it would prevent more than 5,500 deaths and 132,000 injuries annually.
