If you get caught without a seat belt, don’t expect any leniency for the next two weeks.
The Lodi Police Department is taking part in a two-week program that mandates zero tolerance for seat belt violations until Nov. 29, according to Sgt. Chris Jacobsen. Officers are working overtime for the sole purpose of enforcing seat belt laws, and will not be issuing warnings during the zero tolerance period.
Any restraint-related violation will be cited, Jacobsen said, including those involving children’s car seats.
