NORTHAMPTON, Mass. (WWLP) – Northampton is joining cities and towns across the state, and across the country, in the “Click It or Ticket!” campaign.
Massachusetts State Police said, right now, about 89% of drivers wear their seatbelts nationally, compared to only 74% in the state. They want to see the state’s percentage to go up.
From now, until May 23rd, Northampton Police Department will have extra enforcement on the streets, looking for violators. The federal government is footing the overtime bill during that time.
