New “Coast to Coast” Seat Belt Enforcement Effort Aims to Increase Click It or Ticket Participation, Save Lives  

San Francisco, CA – From May 23 to June 5, 2016, local law enforcement personnel will participate in the national Click It or Ticket campaign in an effort to save lives through increased seat belt use. This education enforcement period comes ahead of the Memorial Day holiday, one of the busiest travel weekends of the year.  
According to research conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, while 88.5 percent of passenger vehicle occupants buckled up in 2015, almost 50 percent of occupants of fatal crashes nationwide are not restrained. In some states, the rate is as high as 70 percent unrestrained in fatal crashes.  In California, more than a half million people travel our roadways at grave risk without proper restraints. These facts gravely highlight the need for increased education, awareness and enforcement and awareness of seat belt use.  
This year, NHTSA is aiming to increase campaign participation even more by coordinating a “Coast to Coast” seat belt education and enforcement effort with the California Highway Patrol and law enforcement around the I-10, I-40, I-70 and I-80 corridors. Additionally, law enforcement agencies statewide are joining the Click It or Ticket effort to emphasize the “Coast to Coast” seat belt safety awareness campaign in all 50 states.   
“As law enforcement, we have a special role in helping protect the safety of our citizens, from the East to the West Coast,” said Chief Toney Chaplin, San Francisco Police Department. “Time after time, we see the deadly results that come from drivers and passengers refusing to wear a seat belt. Wearing a seat belt is one of the most important steps in increasing survivability in a crash. Our job is to stop those who are not buckled up, and to keep them from repeating this potentially deadly mistake.”  
In 2014, nearly half of the 21,022 passenger vehicle occupants killed in crashes nationally were unrestrained, according to NHTSA. During the nighttime hours of 6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m., that number increased to 57 percent of those killed. Law enforcement agencies will write citations day and night, with a zero-tolerance approach.   
“Hundreds of thousands of citizens will be traveling this Memorial Day weekend, as well as throughout the summer vacation season. We want to make sure that people are buckling up to keep themselves and their families safe. It is the greatest defense in a vehicle crash,” said Rhonda Craft, Director of the California Office of Traffic Safety.

10:33pm                        Unit Blk. Lisbon             Malicious Mischief
A homeowner looked out his window and saw an older Lexus blocking his neighbor’s driveway. He called his neighbor and she called dispatch which sent a parking control officer to cite the vehicle owner. About an hour later, the man heard a “hissing” sound and looked out the window and saw a man puncturing the tires of his neighbor’s Toyota SUV, kicking the vehicle’s rear door, and “keying” the car. The man yelled and the man fled in the same Lexus that was cited for blocking the driveway. Ingleside officer’s Ferronato and Landis arrived to take a report and interview the victim and her neighbor. The officers obtained the license plate number of the Lexus that was cited and then drove to the registered address for the vehicle. There they found the owner who admitted he was mad about the illegal parking citation but denied vandalizing the vehicle. The officers had the witness brought to the scene and he positively identified the suspect as the man he saw vandalizing his neighbor’s car. The suspect was arrested for that crime and for a parole violation and taken to Ingleside Station. Report number: 160435135
2:41pm                          4500 Blk. Mission                            Narcotics
Ingleside officers Barajas and Archilla were on routine patrol when they spotted an older Honda Civic with three men inside driving southbound on Mission. The driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt nor were his two passengers and there was a blue paper advertisement covering the rear license plate. The driver stopped the vehicle midblock and double parked, blocking a lane of traffic. The officers parked behind the Honda, exited their car, walked up to the vehicle, and asked the driver for license, registration, and insurance. The paper work didn’t match the name of the driver. The registration was expired for more than a year. A search of the vehicle’s interior revealed a quantity of methamphetamine and a pipe to smoke the substance. The driver was cited for several vehicle code violations and released at the scene. Report number: 160434002

The man walked away and stood in the middle of Valencia Street blocking traffic. The officer’s asked him to go to the sidewalk and he refused. The officer’s tried to physically move him to the sidewalk and he became combative. After a struggle, they were finally able to restrain him. He was cited for resisting arrest and released at the scene. Report number: 160434262
