Governor Cuomo announced a statewide "Buckle up New York" campaign to crack down on drivers and their passengers who are not wearing seat belts will be conducted by law enforcement agencies throughout New York State now through June 2nd. According to the U.S. Department of Transportation's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 52% of the 21,253 passenger vehicle occupants killed in 2011 were not wearing their seat belts at the time of the crash, adding that in 2011, seat belts saved an estimated 11,949 lives nationwide including 444 in New York State. During this year's campaign, law enforcement agencies that share state borders will team up in what is being called "Operation Border to Border" to provide increased seat belt enforcement at border sites, sending a zero tolerance message that driving or riding unbuckled will result in a ticket, no matter what state you are in.
