'Click it or Ticket' seatbelt campaign under way
Westchester County Police launched their ?Click it or Ticket? campaign Monday as part of the national effort to make sure everyone is buckled up.
In 2007, more than 400 people in Westchester died because they weren?t wearing seatbelts, according to campaign statistics.
County police set up checkpoints at the Saw Mill and Cross County Parkway ramps at Rumsey road Monday morning. Overall, county police say 90 percent of Westchester drivers buckle up, but they?re always trying to make that number higher.
"A lot of people [are] going away, going to see family [this summer],? Sgt. Sean Faccilonga says. ?We want to make sure they get there in one piece."
?Click it or Ticket? runs nationwide and locally for the next two weeks.
