County Executive Edward P. Mangano and Acting Police Commissioner Thomas C. Krumpter announce that the Nassau County Police Department will participate in the Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee’s grant for occupant restraint enforcement. The “Buckle Up New York, Click It or Ticket” will take place from May 23, 2011 through June 5, 2011.
This initiative will consist of high visibility enforcement, targeting occupant restraint non-compliance. A zero tolerance policy for such violations will apply. The goal of the program is to increase safety belt and child seat usage in an effort to reduce serious injuries and fatalities resulting from motor vehicle accidents.
