HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania State Police troopers will once again participate in the “Click It or Ticket” traffic enforcement program through Sunday, Dec. 8.
If a motorist is stopped for a traffic violation and is not wearing a seatbelt, they will be issued two citations – one for the traffic violation and a second for the seatbelt violation.
During the enforcement, troopers will have a “zero-tolerance” policy towards any violation of the commonwealth’s seatbelt and child passenger restraint laws.
In conjunction with this aggressive enforcement approach, troopers – throughout Troop C – will conduct regulatory and child safety seat checkpoints.
According to state police, by buckling up and using child safety seats properly, you significantly increase your chances of surviving a motor vehicle 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.
Children who are age 2 years or under must be secured in a rear-facing child safety seat. So, to help parents safely transport children, troopers will conduct free child safety seat checks.
In Clearfield, a check will be held, from 2 p.m. – 6 p.m., Wednesday, Nov. 27 at the Clearfield Volunteer Fire Department. For more information or appointments, please call 814-857-3800.
Troopers will examine all child restraint seats for proper installation, and parents will receive instructions on how to correct any deficiencies.
