Seat-belt campaign urges drivers to buckle up

South City police, along with police departments across San Mateo County, are gearing up for the state annual “Click It or Ticket” seat belt campaign to increase usage through heavy enforcement, ads and public awareness.

Everyone in a car is required to wear a seat belt in California. Citations for adults can be up to $91.

When children younger than 6 years old are not wearing a seat belt, the driver can receive a point on their record and $401 fine for the first offense. A second offense could bring a $971 fine. The campaign begins Monday and lasts until June 3.

Council upholds appeal for project on former school site

The City Council this week upheld aPlanning Commission decision to approve a major subdivision on a former school site, after months of study sessions on the project and in spite of an appeal filed by some residents downhill from the project.

Danville-based developer Braddock and Logan earned the approval to build 37 single-family homes on the 10.7-acre former Millbrae School site, which has been closed for several years.

The cash-strapped Millbrae School District agreed last year to sell the long-empty site for $20.1 million as part of a fiscal recovery plan.

Officers will be serving starting at 5 p.m. on May 23, at Red Robin, located at 2204 Bridgepointe Parkway in San Mateo.
