The “Click it or Ticket” campaign will be running from May 23 through June 5 throughout New York State. During the campaign New York State Police, Local Police will be using marked and unmarked vehicles, have checkpoints, and roving details to patrol for unbelted drivers and unrestrained passengers.
“It’s simple—buckling up is the safest, quickest, and easiest thing you can do to protect yourself as a driver or passenger while traveling in a vehicle,” said Mark J.F. Schroeder, Commissioner of the Department of Motor Vehicles and GTSC Chair. “This education and enforcement mobilization focuses on raising awareness among teens and young adults who are less likely to wear a seat belt than older drivers and passengers. We are fortunate to have NASCAR’s rising star Ross Chastain on our team to help spread this important message.”
Since 2020 it is now New York State law to have everyone wear a seat belt or properly restrained regardless of where they sit.
