PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Troopers will once again be participating in the “Click it or Ticket” traffic enforcement program from Monday, May 19, 2014, through Sunday, June 1, 2014.

If a motorist is stopped for a traffic violation and is not wearing a seat-belt, that individual will receive two citations- one for the traffic violation and the other for the seat-belt violation.

During the “Click it or Ticket” program, troopers will be adopting a zero-tolerance policy toward any violation of the Commonwealth’s seat-belt and child passenger restraint laws. In conjunction with this aggressive enforcement approach, troopers throughout Troop C will be conducting regulatory checkpoints and child safety seat checkpoints.

By buckling up and using child safety seats properly, you significantly increase your chances of surviving a crash. Pennsylvania law also stipulates that children under the age of 8 must be properly secured in a federally approved child safety seat when riding anywhere in a vehicle. Failure to comply with this law can result in fines and costs totaling more than $90.00.

To help parents safely transport children, Pennsylvania State Police will conduct free child passenger safety seat checks. These checkpoints serve to reduce the number of improperly installed child safety seats, identity defective seats, detect seats that are affected by recalls from the manufacturer, and also provide an excellent opportunity to have any questions regarding the child passenger safety seat law answered.

The Pennsylvania State Police will conduct free child passenger safety seat checks at the following locations:
