Drivers who aren’t buckled up might have to pay up during a two-week Click it or Ticket Campaign.

Tucson Police Department traffic enforcement officers will be working overtime shifts from Monday through June 2 to make sure drivers are complying with seat belt and child safety seat laws, Sgt. Chris Widmer, spokesman for the TPD, said in a news release. Efforts will be concentrated in high traffic areas during peak driving hours.

The campaign is paid for with a grant from the Governor’s Office of Highway Safety.
