Click It or Ticket Campaign Begins May 18, 2015

Fremont, CA – The Fremont Police Department would like to remind motorists to Click It or Ticket. As part of the national seat belt enforcement campaign, law enforcement agencies around the country will be stepping up enforcement May 18-31, which includes one of the busiest travel weekends of the year that kicks off the summer season.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly half of the 21,132 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in 2013 were unrestrained. At night from 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m., that number soared to 59 percent of those killed. That’s why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign is nighttime enforcement. Participating law enforcement agencies will be taking a no-excuses approach to seat belt law enforcement, writing citations day and night. In California, the minimum penalty for a seat belt violation is $161.

California statistics reveal that 500 unrestrained vehicle occupants died in 2013. Almost twice as many males were killed in crashes as compared to females, with lower belt use rates too. Of the males killed in crashes in 2013, more than half (54%) were unrestrained. For females killed in crashes, 41 percent were not buckled up.

In addition to enforcing the use of safety restraints (CVC sections 27315 (d), (e) and (f)) during this campaign, Fremont officers will also be on the lookout for violations of failing to properly secure children under the age of 8 in a child safety seat (CVC 27360 (a) (b) and 27360.5).

We ask that everyone in our community partner with us in this campaign by wearing their seat belt and making sure that children under the age of 8 are properly secured!
