Buckle Up New York
The Geneseo Police Department would like to remind motorists of the importance of using seat belts and child safety. The Police Department is participating in the national seatbelt enforcement mobilization, which will run during Thanksgiving week and is designed to further improve highway safety.
This initiative will urge motorists to buckle their safety belts or face receiving a ticket. The message is simple: “Click It or Ticket”. The Buckle Up New York, “Click It or Ticket” enforcement and education initiative sends a clear message that seatbelts and child safety seats save lives.
New York State has been a leader in passenger safety restraint since enacting the very first seatbelt law in the country in 1984 by utilizing efforts that combines public education with increased police enforcement of New York’s seat belt law.
Under New York State law, safety restraint use is required for: all front seat occupants regardless of age; all rear seat passengers under 16 years of age; children under age 4 must be restrained in a federally approved child safety seat.
New York’s zero-tolerance policy for seat belt violations means that violators will receive a ticket if stopped for not using a safety restraint. The fine for such violations is up to $50 and $100 if a motorist is stopped for having a person less than 16 years old unrestrained, plus three points on their license.
According to state law, motorists can be stopped in New York by a police officer for not wearing their seat belt; another violation is not necessary to initiate the stop.
