“Click It or Ticket” Campaign Reminds Californians to Always Buckle Up: Seat Belt Safety Campaign Runs Through Memorial Day

Campbell, Calif. – For Memorial Day Weekend, the Campbell Police Department reminds travelers to always buckle up and secure children in the right car seats when visiting friends and family.
This year’s Click It or Ticket campaign runs from May 20 to June 2. During this time, the Campbell Police Department will have officers on patrol actively looking for drivers and passengers who are not wearing a seat belt. This includes vehicles where children are not secured in child safety seats or the right safety seats for their age.
“Wearing a seat belt should be automatic for all drivers and passengers every trip,” Chief of Police, Gary Berg said. “Seat belts save lives, and it's crucial for everyone, whether you are sitting in the front or back seat, are a child or adult, to always remember to buckle up.”
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), nearly 12,000 people killed in crashes throughout the country in 2021 were not wearing seat belts. In California, 878 people killed in crashes in 2021 were not wearing seat belts, an increase of 12.3 percent from 2020.
California law requires a child to be secured in a safety or booster seat until they are at least 8 years old or at least 4 feet, 9 inches tall. Children under the age of 2 must ride in a rear-facing seat unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more inches tall.
