Washington State Patrol troopers say many parents who either are trying to cut corners or time are not properly securing kids in a vehicle putting kids lives at risk. The Washington Traffic Safety Commission is kicking off a Clickit or Ticket campaign Monday that targets those drivers. People who ignore the many warnings about the need to buckle kids up. Sessi Valez is the Project Manager for the Commission Child Safety program says they see lots of violations during the patrols. “Some of the kids we find on a traffic stop are not restrained at all.”
Washington State Patrol Troopers and police officers up and down the Yakima Valley are working overtime May 22 to June 4 looking for drivers who speed and who aren’t buckling up.
From 2011-2015, almost half (48 percent) of child fatalities caused by a vehicular collision had unknown or no restraint use; 15 percent of those were under 13 years of age and illegally riding in the front seat; and 21 percent were riding without a booster – restrained only by a lap/shoulder seat belt. Valez says the majority of these tragedies likely could have been avoided had these children been properly restrained.
