The McAllen Police Department will have Police Officers out in full force during the period of May 23, 2016 and concluding on June 5, 2016 enforcing laws that are in effect to protect all of us. State law requires everyone in a vehicle to be secured by a seat belt. That means unbuckled adult passengers in the back seat will be ticketed, too. Children younger than 8 years old must be in a child safety seat or booster seat.
The McAllen Police Department wants all its citizens to be safe every day, but especially during the Memorial Day holiday weekend. Enforcing these laws is a daily task for the officers, but this Click It or Ticket Mobilization Campaign is an emphasis that the laws have a purpose and that “Safety” should be on everyone’s mind.”
