Police ready to crackdown on drivers who don't buckle up
All drivers and passengers in New York state should make sure to check their seat-belts as another crackdown is set to begin. Starting today state police will be cracking down on those who do not use their seat-belts. The initiative will last until June 3. State police will join 400 law enforcement units to enforce the seat-belt law. Drivers who get caught with no seat-belt could face points on their license and could pay fines up to 100 dollars per passenger under the age of 16 in their vehicle. Passengers in the front seat who are of age could face a 50 dollar fine.
