Bucle Up For Safety

News

Listen up NY drivers... Every one of you and your passengers better make sure you're buckled up.

NY City and NY State police will be running a two-week crackdown on seat-belts starting Monday and running through June 3.

New York State Police will join around 400 local law enforcement agencies statewide to enforce the seat-belt law.

This legislation clearly states that all people in a vehicle's front seats have to wear seat-belts. So do all children under 16 years old, no matter what seat they're in. All children under 8 years old must be in an appropriate child restraint system.

Anyone caught without wearing their seat-belt can look forward to a summons and points on your license, pay a hefty fine of $100 for each passenger under 16 not wearing a seat-belt. Front-seat passengers who are over 16 can be fined $50 if they're caught without a seat-belt.

So please, don't say City Island Images didn't warn you!
