South Pasadena police to join in Click It or Ticket campaign this month

SOUTH PASADENA >> South Pasadena police will be joining with law enforcement agencies throughout the nation this month in a crackdown on seat belt safety known as the Click It or Ticket campaign.
Officers will be on the lookout for those who fail to use their seat belts Monday through June 1, South Pasadena police officials said in a written statement.
“In a crash, they stand a 50 percent greater chance of being killed than those who have taken the two seconds to buckle in,” according to the police statement.
“Memorial Day weekend kicks off summer vacation season, and we want to ensure that everyone arrives at their destination safe and sound,” South Pasadena Police Officer Jeff Holland said. “If you are not wearing your seat belt, you will be ticketed.”
“Wearing a seat belt is one of the easiest and best things you can do to protect yourself in the event of a car crash,” the officer added. “Taking a few moments to properly secure yourself and all your passengers before going on your way could mean the difference between life and death.”
Funding for the campaign is provided by the California Office of Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
