‘Click It or Ticket’ effort underway
WESTPORT — State and local police are enforcing seat belt use throughout the holiday season through the state Department of Transportation’s Click It or Ticket effort.
The initiative aims to remind motorists and passengers to wear a seat belt every time they enter a vehicle, according to a news release. The state DOT has teamed up with Westport law enforcement to deploy the mobilization to coincide with the Thanksgiving holiday. The campaign will run through Nov. 26.
Connecticut law requires all drivers and passengers in the front seat, regardless of the occupant’s age. Fines start at a minimum of $92 for first offense, the release said.
