Unbuckled and distracted drivers on their cellphones will be targeted when police patrol the roads during the annual “Click it or Ticket” campaign.
Through June 2, motorists in King County can expect to see law enforcement patrolling city and county roads in search of unbuckled drivers and passengers and drivers using their cellphones, according to a press release from the Washington Traffic Safety Commission.
Last year, during the same time period, officers on routine and extra patrols statewide issued 3,171 seat belt violations, and 1,059 cellphone violations were written.
This campaign and all extra patrols are part of Target Zero, an attempt to end traffic deaths and serious injuries by the year 2030. Go to www.targetzero.com.
