PHOENIX (AP) - State and local law enforcement agencies in Arizona are launching a two-week campaign to get more people to buckle up by wearing seat belts and securing children in safety seats.

The May 18-31 effort in Arizona straddles the Memorial Day weekend, is part of a national “Click It or Ticket” campaign and will feature extra patrols emphasizing enforcement of laws on seat belts and child safety seats.

Arizona has a secondary seat belt law that allows officers to only issue citations for violations during traffic stops for other violations.

However, Arizona’s child restraint law is a primary enforcement measure under which officers can stop vehicles because of suspected violations of that law.
