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

Teens Reminded to Buckle Up and Arrive Alive


The Lawrence County Sheriff’s Office participated in the statewide youth seat belt mobilization conducted March 15-31.  During the enforcement effort, deputies issued a total of three traffic tickets including:  two speeding tickets; one uninsured motorist ticket.  50 warnings were issued for various other moving violations during the crackdown.

“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.
