lights and sirens

There's never been a better time to buckle up in Tucson.

Doing so could spare you a traffic ticket as state and local law enforcers launch an "aggressive" three-week crack-down on those who flout seat belt and child safety seat laws.

The campaign runs from Monday May 14 to Sunday June 3.  

The Pima County Sheriff's Department, one of the local agencies participating, will have deputies working extra traffic enforcement shifts with a special focus on seat belt violations.

"Motorists should be prepared to see more law enforcement on the roads, both day and night," a sheriff's department news release said.

It described the campaign as "aggressive" and said it is aimed at encouraging more people to use seat belts and child safety restraints, which substantially reduce the likelihood of crash injury or death.
