Redwood City Police will carry out Operation Seat Belt this June 1 and 2

Redwood City Police will carry out Operation Seat Belt this June 1 and 2

The Redwood City Police Department ?RCPD, for its acronym in English? will carry out a "Seat Belt Operation" to verify and enforce that vehicle drivers and passengers comply with its use.

The operation that will take place on June 1 and 2 in the city will also include drivers who do not secure children in child safety seats.

 "Buckle up, it's your best defense in a crash and it only takes a few seconds," said Rich Santiago, RCPD Traffic Division Supervisor. “The same goes for car seats. Children need to be as safe as possible when traveling in the car, and an important way to do this is to make sure they are secured in the correct car seat."

 Under California law, children under the age of two who weigh less than 40 pounds or are less than 40 inches tall must ride in a rear-facing car seat. While children under the age of eight or under 4 feet 9 inches ?1.45 meters? tall must be secured in a car or booster seat. 

To find a car seat fitting station near you, visit the California Office of Traffic Safety website or the searchedaCalifornia Highway Patrol office dor.

This program is funded by the California Office of Highway Traffic Safety, through the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
