Lawrence County Sheriff's Office Releases Youth Seat Belt Enforcement Results

The Lawrence County Sheriff's Office participated in the statewide youth seat belt mobilization conducted March 15-31.  During the enforcement effort, officers issued a total of 11 traffic tickets including nine (9) seat belt tickets: one suspended license ticket and one un-insured motorist ticket.  25 warnings were issued for various other traffic violations.

"Seat belts are your single best defense in a crash," stated Sheriff Brad DeLay.  "Law Enforcement will continue to encourage drivers to make a simple, smart choice to buckle up and Arrive Alive."

Despite evidence proving the benefits of wearing a seat belt, 33 percent of teens do not buckle up.  Eight out of ten Missouri teens killed in traffic crashes are unbuckled. 

Buckle Up and Arrive Alive.  For information on Missouri seat belt usage, visit www.saveMolives.com
