The Reading Police Department is teaming up with the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security's, Highway Safety Division, and police departments around the state in an effort to crack down over the next several weeks on motorists who are not buckling up.
According to a press release from the Reading Police Department, the town will be a part of a Click it or Ticket high-visibility enforcement campaign that runs from October 18 through November 1.
During the crackdown period, officers will be particularly vigilant while looking for unbelted drivers and passengers. According to the press release, every person found not wearing a seat belt over the next two weeks will receive a ticket.
Police said that during the Halloween season when residents will be transporting trick-or-treaters to and from party areas, it is particularly important to be wearing seat belts.
"We will be showing zero tolerance for anyone who is not wearing a seat belt," said Reading Police Lt. David Stamatis. "Our simple goal is to save more lives."
