Extra patrols starting May 23 will emphasize seat belt safety

Many Whatcom County law enforcement agencies will increase patrols from Monday, May 23, to Sunday, June 5, as part of a national movement to promote seat belt safety.

Police departments in Bellingham, Blaine, Ferndale, Lynden, Everson and at Western Washington University, as well as the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office, will participate in Click It or Ticket. The two-week campaign, organized by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, encourages drivers and passengers to buckle up for every trip.
