To save more lives on Arizona’s roadways, Buckeye Police Department is partnering with the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and other local law enforcement agencies to enforce Arizona’s seat belt and child safety seat laws.
The national “Click It or Ticket” program runs through Sunday, June 2.
Arizona conducts enforcement under a secondary seat belt law and a primary child safety seat law. The enforcement campaign is based on high-visibility traffic enforcement, with a “zero-tolerance” approach towards seat belt and child safety seat usage.
As part of the national “Click It or Ticket” seat belt enforcement campaign, law enforcement agencies across the state will be stepping up traffic enforcement patrols and increasing other enforcement efforts to drive home the message: Buckle Up Arizona … lt’s the Law!”
Buckeye police are conducting saturation patrols and will have strict enforcement on seat belt and child safety seat laws during the two weeks.
Regular seat belt use is an effective way to protect people and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes. When worn correctly, seat belts have proven to reduce serious crash-related injuries and deaths by about 50%.
Funding for this campaign is provided by the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
