Increased ‘Click it or Ticket’ seat belt enforcement through June 4, FREE child car seat inspections


Ahead of the Memorial Day weekend and busy summer travel season, the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) and the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) will partner with municipal police departments statewide during the national “Click it or Ticket” seat-belt enforcement mobilization through June 4.

As part of the enforcement, Pennsylvania State Police and local departments will join agencies across the eastern half of the United States for a border-to-border initiative beginning May 22 to provide increased seat-belt enforcement at state borders, reinforcing the states’ focus on safety.

To help ensure the safety of infants and children in cars, troopers certified as Child Passenger Safety Technicians will offer no-cost car seat fittings and inspections at various locations throughout the state.

Motorists are reminded that Pennsylvania’s primary seat-belt law requires drivers and passengers under 18 years old to buckle up when riding anywhere in a vehicle.

After the age of 18, drivers and passengers must wear a seat belt when behind the wheel or in the front passenger seat.

As of August, 2016, Pennsylvania law mandates that children under two-years-old to be secured in a rear-facing car seat.

Children under the age of four must be restrained in an approved child safety seat. A booster seat is required for children until their eighth birthday.

A complete list of child passenger seat fitting stations is available at www.psp.pa.gov.
