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!
