PUNXSUTAWNEY – Pennsylvania State Police Troopers will once again be participating in the “Click It or Ticket” traffic enforcement program from May 22 through June 4.
If a motorist is stopped for a traffic violation and is not wearing a seatbelt, the driver will receive two citations – one for the traffic violation and the other for the seatbelt violation.
During the “Click It or Ticket” program, troopers will be adopting a zero-tolerance policy toward any violation of the Commonwealth’s seatbelt and child passenger restraint laws.
In conjunction with this aggressive enforcement approach, troopers throughout Troop C will be conducting regulatory checkpoints and child safety seat checkpoints.
By buckling up and using child safety seats properly, you significantly increase your chances of surviving a crash.
Pennsylvania law also stipulates that children under the age of 8 years must be properly secured in a federally-approved child safety seat when riding anywhere in a vehicle.
To help parents safely transport children, the Pennsylvania State Police will conduct free child passenger safety seat checks.
These checkpoints serve to reduce the number of improperly installed child safety seats, identify defective seats, detect seats that are affected by recalls from the manufacturer and also provide an opportunity to have any questions regarding the child passenger safety seat law answered.
The Pennsylvania State Police will be conducting child passenger safety seat check in Clearfield County from 3 p.m. – 7 p.m. May 24 at the Clearfield Fire Department at 108 E. Cherry St.
Troopers will examine all child restraint seats for proper installation, and parents will receive instructions on how to correct any deficiencies.
