It only takes two seconds to buckle up. Two seconds! And those two seconds could literally save your life. They will also keep you from getting a ticket and a fine.
Police departments throughout California will be looking for drivers and passengers who don’t buckle up during the “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign. And that includes passengers in the back seat. “Click It or Ticket” debuted in California in 2005, and since then over one million more vehicle occupants have started buckling up.
The cost of an adult seat belt violation costs $132, and up to $435 for not properly restraining a child under 16. If the parent is not in the car, the driver gets the ticket.
So when you pack up the family, or even just yourself, please do so safely. Don’t put your own life at risk, or the life of your family or friends. Buckle up. The 2009 campaign runs from May 18th - 31st.
