Click It or Ticket. Starts Today, How Much Will You Pay If You Don’t?
Click it or Ticket? What does that mean? It means wear your seat belt while driving or get pulled over and get a ticket.
Simple, right? If you are someone who wears your seat belt on a regular basis, it isn't a big deal, it is just something that you naturally do each and every time you get into the car. If you are someone who doesn't, well, you have the option of not wearing one. Hold on, I didn't say that it was legal to not wear one, just that you have the option. Of course, this is also the option that comes with paying for a ticket and points on your license.
New York State law requires all front seat passengers to wear seat belts. Children under the age of 16 must wear seat belts when they are in the front seat or the back seat. Children under the age of four must ride in safety seats.
The penalty for a seat belt or car seat violation is a fine of up $50. If the violation is for a person under the age of 16, the driver receives a maximum fine of $100 and three driver violation points upon conviction.
The extra police officers will be out now through June 4, 2017.
