Area Police To Step Up Seat Belt Enforcement

The Elmira Police Department would like to take this time to advise motorists of the Elmira Police Department’s participation in the Buckle Up New York/ Click It or Ticket Campaign starting May 20, 2019 and running through June 2, 2019.

This is a statewide enforcement campaign designed to save lives and reduce the severity of injuries by increasing safety restraint use.  Partnered with The NY Governor’s Traffic Safety Committee (GTSC) a strategic goal has been set to increase the observed statewide seat belt use rate and to decrease unrestrained occupant fatalities in passenger vehicles.

Area motorists should expect to see an increase of high visibility enforcement by the Elmira Police and other police departments during this time period focusing on seat belt use.
