Click It or Ticket Campaign – May 21st through June 3rd 2012.
The 2012 National Click It or Ticket Campaign starts next week. The Office of Traffic Safety (OTS) is asking all law enforcement agencies throughout California to participate in maximum high-visibility seat belt enforcement. “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 in 2005 to a record high of 96.2 percent in 2010, representing over 1.25 million more vehicle occupants who have started buckling up.
The minimum ticket cost of an adult seat belt violation in California is $142 and up, and a minimum of $445 for not properly restraining a child under 16. If the parent is not in the car, the driver gets the ticket. When you load up the family for a road trip, a trek across town or just driving to school or work, please do so safely. Don’t put your own life at risk, or the life of your family or friends.
We will be participating in this campaign. Please remember to BUCKLE UP.
If you need assistance with a child safety seat installation please contact us at 510/ 337-8590 for an appointment.
