NY State Police plan 2-week 'buckle up' enforcement campaign
(AP) -- The New York State Police and other law enforcement agencies across the state are launching their annual "buckle up" campaign.
State troopers, including those assigned to the detail that patrols the Thruway, will be joining with local and county law enforcement officers across New York to make sure motorists are using their seatbelts as the summer travel season gears up.
The two-week, zero-tolerance enforcement campaign starts Monday and lasts through June 5. Police will be looking for drivers and passengers who aren't buckled in properly.
State police say seatbelt usage saves the lives of thousands of motorist each year.
