Berlin Police Department to Intensify Enforcement of Safety Belt & Child Safety Seat Laws

Look for patrols at random times and high traffic locations.

 

The Berlin Police Department will be conducting a “Click it or Ticket” High Visibility Seat Belt Campaign starting on May 21, 2012 and running through June 3, 2012.  This is in conjunction with the statewide “Click it or Ticket” campaign sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Transportation.

During this period Berlin Police Officers will conduct occupant safety belt checks at various locations in Town.  These checks will be conducted on the following days, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday randomly during those two weeks. Locations will be one of the Route 9 ramps and locations along Route 372.

The intent of this enforcement effort is to remind motorists to always use good highway safety sense, especially during this highly traveled holiday season.

 

During this safe driving campaign, motorists are also reminded that State and local police will also be enforcing speed, cell phone, distracted driving, and DUI laws during the entire summer driving season.

How about spending more time on those texting and cell phones? I'm a firm believer in seat belts but wearing one saves your own life. Texting and driving distracted takes lives of innocent people wearing seat belts and riding motorcycles. Let's start a campain to ticket those people! Maybe cell phone cameras instead of red light cameras?
