Police begin annual 'Click It or Ticket' campaign

HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Starting on Monday, Honolulu police will be cracking down on drivers and passengers who forget to buckle-up as the national 'Click It or Ticket' campaign begins.

Police departments statewide say they will begin stepping up enforcement of the Hawaii law, which calls for $102 fines for violations.

Front-seat passengers must be 8-years of age or older, and fines for seatbelt violations involving child restraints are court-determined on a case-by-case basis.

Police say they will also be stepping up enforcement on the laws that mandate passengers can only ride the beds of trucks if they are 12-years of age or older and all seats in the cab of the vehicle are full.

Violators of the state's restrictions on electronic device usage will be given a $200 dollar fine for the first offense, and a $300 dollar fine for offenses thereafter.
