State Police institute “Buckle Up NY”

Governor Cuomo is implementing a 14-day statewide “Buckle Up New York” campaign to crack down on drivers and their passengers who are not wearing seat belts.

The campaign will be conducted by law enforcement agencies throughout New York State from May 20 through June 2.

“Buckle Up New York” is part of the nationwide “Click It or Ticket” campaign.

During this year’s campaign law enforcement agencies that share state borders will team up in what is being called “Operation Border to Border” to provide increased seat belt enforcement at border sites, sending a zero tolerance message that driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state you are in.
