OC police to take part in seatbelt enforcement

From staff reports

Oil City police are participating in a national Click-It or Ticket seat belt enforcement initiative starting Monday and continuing through June 2.

Citations will be issued to motorists who are caught unbuckled or transporting unrestrained children.

The goal is to reduce unbelted injuries and deaths through traffic enforcement zones and roving patrols. Traffic enforcement zones combine stationary enforcement and checkpoint tactics.

Pennsylvania’s primary seat belt law requires drivers and passengers under 18 to buckle up, and children under four must be properly restrained in an approved child safety seat. Front-seat passengers 18 and older are also required to buckle up.
