Redding Police and other law enforcement agencies are launching their annual ``buckle up'' campaign. State troopers, will be joining local law enforcement officers to make sure motorists are using their seatbelts as the summer travel season gears up.
The two-week, zero-tolerance enforcement campaign starts today and lasts through June 5th. Redding Police will be looking for drivers and passengers who aren't buckled in properly.
Chief Douglas Fuchs says belt use rate in Redding has gone down, according to state researchers who have been tasked to make those observations. Fuchs says it's such an easy way to help prevent injuries and save lives.
