'Click it or Ticket' emphasis now through June 1
The Renton Police Department is participating in a "Click it or Ticket" emphasis between now and June 1.
Through June 1, motorists in King County - including Renton - can expect to see extra seat belt and distracted driving patrols.
Last year, during this same time period, officers on extra patrols statewide issued 2,963 seat belt violations amongst the 11,666 motorists who were stopped.
Also last year during this time period, 1,897 cell phone and texting violations were written. However, taking a historical look, in 2010, (when the primary law went into effect) only 63 drivers were cited statewide at this time.
These and all extra patrols are part of Target Zero—striving to end traffic deaths and serious injuries in Washington by 2030.
