Click It Or Ticket Shifts Into High Gear With Bigger Fines

khts_crimeIf safety isn’t a big enough incentive, how about avoiding increased fines and a citation on your record with a simple “click” of your car’s seat belt. It’s illegal to drive without being safely belted in – and the law doesn’t just apply to the driver, either – it means everyone in the car is safely belted in.

The fines and fees have increased from $132 to $142 for a first-time adult seat belt violation. For children under 16, the fine is now $445 for a first-time offense.

Law enforcement throughout the state, including the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department — Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station will be looking for unbelted drivers and passengers as part of the 2010 Click It or Ticket mobilization, May 24 – June 6.

Currently California has a seat belt usage rate of 95.3 percent, but that still means over half a million people are not buckling up. Properly restrained drivers, passengers and children have a 50 percent better chance of surviving a crash than unbelted occupants. Those ejected from vehicles in crashes or roll-overs are up to 35 times more likely to die than restrained occupants.

“Keep your friends and family safe by buckling up no matter where you’re going,” said Captain Paul Becker of the Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station. “We will be looking for motorists throughout the area who are not buckling up, day and night. It’s not just about avoiding a ticket; it’s about keeping the ones you care about alive.”

Seat belt violators will receive citations – no warnings. The Click It or Ticket campaign relies on heavy enforcement and public education as a means to help save lives on California’s roadways.

“Wearing a seat belt is just simply the easiest and most effective thing you can do on the road to protect yourself and your family,” said Christopher J. Murphy, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety. “That means buckling up day and night, on every trip.”

Permanent Click It or Ticket highway signs, which have been up since 2005, will be updated to reflect the new ‘Minimum $142′ in the coming months.

More than 150 local law enforcement agencies statewide and the CHP will be participating in this year’s Click It or Ticket mobilization. Funding to support California’s Click It or Ticket campaign was provided by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
