Police in South San Francisco on Friday cited 67 motorists for
failing to wear seatbelts while driving, a police lieutenant said.
Officers of the Police Department's traffic unit issued the
citations during a "Click it or Ticket" enforcement effort to implement
safety belt and child restraint use laws, Lt. Keith Wall said.
In addition to the 67 tickets for seatbelt violations, police also
cited one motorist for driving without a license and another for driving with
a suspended license, Wall said.
Three specially trained officers spent the entire day Friday
enforcing seatbelt laws, Wall said.
The department plans to deploy other special enforcement details
for seatbelt violators in the coming weeks. A nationwide "Click it or Ticket"
enforcement period is to take place from May 19 to early June, Wall said.
South San Francisco police received a grant, from the California
Office of Traffic Safety through the National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration, which funded the seatbelt enforcement program
