Law enforcement plans another seat belt crackdown

Law enforcement plans another seat belt crackdown

"Our mission is to save lives and reduce injuries by getting more people to buckle up", Ashland Police Chief Todd Kelley said.

Of the 597 motor vehicle fatalities in Kentucky past year, 52 percent (308) were not wearing a seat belt.

According to NCDOT, more than 70,000 vehicle crashes have been reported so far across the state in 2018. On that same day, between 4 and 8 PM, law enforcement officers in Arkansas will join forces with Missouri, Kansas, Iowa, Nebraska and Oklahoma authorities to provide "Border to Border" coverage in seat belt enforcement patrols. "It doesn't matter where you are in a vehicle". The special operation is created to send a zero-tolerance message across the six states that no matter where drivers and passengers are unbuckled, the result will be a ticket. Often, it could have been prevented with the simple click of a seat belt.

One woman, who had skin peeling on her arm from burns, said, "Take care of my mother", McWilliams said. Dave Sawyer says authorities haven't determined whether the explosion was accidental or intentional.

In 2017, 42 percent of automobile fatalities in North Carolina were drivers or passengers who were not wearing their seat belt.

"Seat belts are the first line of defense in the event of a motor vehicle crash and buckling up is the number one thing drivers and passengers can do to keep themselves safe in a auto", Major James B. Basinger, director, Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Patrol, said in a release.

The Pennsylvania State Police are joining PennDOT and law enforcement agencies across the country for the national "Click It or Ticket" seat belt enforcement campaign. As a result of the effort, law enforcement officers issued 17,792 seat belt citations, 6,363 speeding summonses and made 976 impaired driving arrests. That is why one focus of the Click It or Ticket campaign will be nighttime enforcement.
