The Highway Patrol literally will be doing overtime on Tuesday to focus on passenger seat belt and child restraint violations, according to this CHP alert. The officers' overtime is funded by a grant from the Office of Traffic Safety.

Interesting fact from the press release:

In 2008, the California Highway Patrol (CHP) issued 204,187 citations to drivers and passengers who failed to buckle up. That figure does not include the 17,076 tickets issued for child safety seat violations.
