Buckle up for Seatbelt Enforcement month

News Nov 22, 2006 Flamborough Review

Drivers are reminded to buckle up, as April has been designated Seatbelt Enforcement Month by the Hamilton Police Service.

Seatbelt use has proven to be of great concern, say police, as numerous injuries and fatalities have been attributed to the direct result of drivers and/or passengers not wearing their seat belts.

"Seat belts are easy to use and take only a few seconds to ensure they are adjusted properly," noted Sgt. Glenn Jarvie. "Those few seconds used can and will save lives."

The HPS kicked off the program with a media campaign. The enforcement campaign starts today (April 14) and runs until April 23. Officers will be located throughout the city with the primary purpose of locating those who do not comply with the legislation.

Warnings will not be issued.
