'Click It or Ticket' Week in Virginia Beach | News
In an effort to save more lives on Virginia’s roadways, the Virginia Beach Police Department is partnering with State and other local law enforcement agencies to buckle down on all motorists not buckled up.
Special seat belt checkpoints and other stepped-up law enforcement activities will be conducted during a heavy wave of enforcement during the week of November 13 – 20.
Virginia Law allows law enforcement to cite anyone driving a car in which an occupant under age 18 is not wearing a safety belt or is not properly secured in a child safety seat.
The law also provides that drivers stopped for other violations can be cited if they are not properly restrained. This also applies to all front seat passengers over the age of 18.
While the safety belt usage rate in Virginia has climbed to almost 83%, more than 50% of our fatalities are not buckled up.
For more information, contact Sgt. Mark R. Miller or Officer D.E. Pierce of the Traffic Safety Unit, at 385-4606 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
