The West Sacramento Police Department announced last week it will participate in the statewide “Click it or Ticket” campaign this summer to target seat belt scofflaws.
The department promises to “help save more lives by strongly enforcing seat belt laws around the clock,” in the campaign that runs May 21 through June 3.
A ticket for a first-time seat belt violation costs $142.
Fifty-one percent of the people killed in auto crashes nationwide in 2010 were not wearing seat belts at the time they were killed, said the department.
