Buckle up: Washington police step up seat belt enforcement patrols Arkansas joining seat belt enforcement plan

"Our whole idea is to try to increase the seat belt usage rate in the state of Tennessee and that's done by enforcement".

After the briefing, around 1 p.m. Tuesday, law enforcement and area emergency responders will conduct an honor procession from downtown Ashland across the Ohio River to Ironton - a caravan of vehicles from all three states joining together to raise awareness that seat belts save lives and to kick off Click It or Ticket at a news conference at Ohio University.

"Using a seat belt is the simplest way for a driver and his or her passengers to protect themselves when traveling", said Gary Poedubicky, acting director of the New Jersey Division of Highway Traffic Safety.

In New York State, seat belt usage is 90%.

An increased police presence will stress the proper use of seat belts and making sure all young passengers are properly restrained inside moving vehicles with auto seats or booster seats.

Senate Committee Releases 2500 Pages About 2016 Trump Tower Meeting
The meeting has been the subject of controversy, particularly the question of whether then-candidate Trump knew about it. A Senate investigator asked Trump Jr. whether his father used a blocked number, and he said he did not know.


The National Click It or Ticket Campaign starts this week and continues through June 3, 2018.

More than 150 law enforcement agencies in Washington will be participating in the campaign.

A campaign kickoff press event will be held at St. John Health System in Tulsa on Monday, May 21 at 11 am. The numbers say otherwise: 61 percent of pickup truck occupants who were killed in 2016 nationwide were not buckled up.

"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.

"If you know a friend or a family member who does not buckle up when they drive, please ask them to consider changing their habits", Bales said.
