Drivers in Redwood City better wear their seatbelts today.

The Redwood City Police Department is among 13 law enforcement agencies throughout San Mateo County participating in the San Mateo County Saturation Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP).

From 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. today, police will look to bust seatbelt violations in the area of Farm Hill Boulevard and Hopkins Avenue.

The enforcement runs in conjunction with Click It Or Ticket seatbelt safety month, which is in May, police said.

“Click It or Ticket isn’t about citations; it’s about saving lives,” police said. “In 2016, there were 10,428 unbuckled passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes in the United States. To help prevent crash fatalities, we need to step up enforcement and crack down on those who don’t wear their seat belts.”
