In an effort to save more lives on Arizona's roadways this month the Governor's Office of Highway Safety is partnering with the Mesa Police Department to enforce Arizona's seat belt and child safety seat laws.
Arizona presently conducts enforcement under a secondary seat belt law and a primary child safety seat law. The enforcement campaign is based upon high visibility traffic enforcement focused on increasing seat belt and child safety seat usage.
As part of a the national Click It or Ticket seat belt enforcement campaign, law enforcement agencies across the state will be stepping up traffic enforcement patrols and increasing other enforcement efforts to drive home the message: Buckle Up Arizona...It's the Law!
Despite widespread efforts to educate drivers about the importance of wearing seat belts, motor vehicles collisions continue to be the leading cause of death and serious injuries to the citizens of our state. The enforcement mobilization will run from May 22 through June 4.
Funding was provided by the Governor's Office of Highway Safety.
