News Briefs: Seat belt enforcement; chamber meeting; Barton board
Motorists in the state line area might want to make extra sure they’re buckled up on Friday night, when South Lake Tahoe police and CHP officers will be conducting a seat belt checkpoint.
The enforcement will take place near the corner of Lake Tahoe Boulevard and Pioneer Trail from about 7 to 11 p.m.
The checkpoint is funded by a grant from the California Office of Traffic Safety and is part of the statewide Click It or Ticket Campaign that’s running from May 12 to June 1.
