Troopers, police take part in national seat belt campaign

Associated PressMay 11, 2012 

Be sure you're using your seat belt starting next week.

Alaska State Troopers and the Anchorage Police Department are taking part in the national "Click It or Ticket" campaign, which starts Monday and ends June 3.

Troopers will be actively looking for people who aren't wearing seat belts. If you get caught, it will cost you a $15 ticket plus court costs.

But if you're stopped by an Anchorage policeman for not wearing a seat belt, you'll have to dig deeper into your pocket. A ticket for those 16 and older not wearing a seat belt costs $60. If a passenger under the age of 16 is not restrained, the driver gets a $200 ticket and two points off their license.
