Menifee Police Department to participate in nationwide ‘Click It or Ticket’ campaign

The Menifee Police Department will be participating in the nationwide Click It or Ticket campaign from May 22 through June 4.

During this time, officers will be actively looking for drivers and passengers who are not wearing seat belts. This includes vehicles where children are not secured in child safety seats.

“Wearing a seat belt should be an automatic for all drivers and passengers,” Menifee Chief of Police Pat Walsh said. “It’s the safe thing to do, especially when it comes to securing children in child safety seats.”

In 2021, nearly 12,000 people were killed in crashes throughout the country, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. In California, 756 people killed in crashes in 2020 were not wearing seat belts or nearly 20 percent of all traffic deaths statewide.

California law requires a child to be secured in a safety or booster seat until they are at least eight years old or at least four feet, nine inches tall. Children under the age of 2 must ride in a rear-facing seat unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds or is 40 or more inches tall.
