NORFOLK- Norfolk Police will join the 2015 national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement mobilization, May 18th-31st.
During the mobilization, officers will be cracking down on motorists who fail to wear their seat belts or buckle their children– both day and night. Last year, the overall observed safety belt use rate statewide was 79% for drivers and front seat passengers. Child restraint use was 96.9%.
A recent survey of Norfolk drivers showed only 52% of drivers were observed wearing their seatbelts which is significantly below the state average.
