Police Across Va. to Enforce Seat-Belt Use

Posted:

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Police officers are planning an effort to enforce traffic laws, particularly seat-belt and child-restraint use.

The Click It or Ticket mobilization started Monday in advance of the upcoming Memorial Day weekend, and will run through June 3.

Over the May 27-30 holiday period last year, 10 people died on Virginia roadways. Of those, half of them weren't using seat belts. Last year 764 people died in traffic-related fatalities, and 306 of those victims weren't wearing seat belts.

Officials say an initiative called the Route 60 Blitz will take place May 25.

Officers from Henrico, Chesterfield, Cumberland, Buckingham, James City, New Kent and York counties will join officers from the cities of Richmond, Williamsburg, Norfolk and Virginia Beach, as well as Virginia State Police, in the effort.
