Manatee sheriff's deputies to target motorists not wearing seat belts

Starting Monday, May 21, the Manatee County Sheriff's Office will be stepping up enforcement on drivers not wearing their seat belts.

The Click it or Ticket campaign will last until June 3.

While this year’s Click it or Ticket runs from May 21 through June 3, motorists should know that deputies are enforcing seatbelt laws year round, the sheriff's office said.

A seat belt violation in Florida is $116 while child restraint violations are $166.
